News :illegal file sharing ring busted ... are you next?

No not me folks, I'm a strictly buy CD person... but be aware that is you download illegally more ways are being devised to catch up with you. The band Domain posted this:
Illegal Filesharing Organisation Busted! Hi everybody, we would like to thank you!

To thank all of our fans, who spent their hard money to buy our albums and download our songs from the legal download shops. Your are the true fans, the real fans, who earn our respect!

This attitude is all the more to appreciate, as we had the chance, by placing inaudible digital watermarks in our songs, to blow the whistle on an illegal filesharer organisation, which downloaded our actual album "The Chronicles Of Love, Hate And Sorrow" over 35.000 times (!) within only 4 weeks by the internet!

You can imagine how catastrophic the financial damage will hit a band like DOMAIN. All the lost money can't be invested in the music production, in touring or high quality merchandise.

Luckily, by using the watermarks, we brought the persons in charge to justice where they had to answer for their delicts. More investigations are in the offing. As far as we can see, this is the first time that a single music group defended themselves successfully against the abuse of their music.

As a band, we would like to express our gratitude to all loyal fans, who appreciate our work even in hard times, by not supporting the despicable steal of our works. YOU keep the band alive!

We salute you!

Axel, Nicolaj, Erdmann, Steven and Jens
