    I was reading an article on Kevin Nottingham's blog about the different ways albums leak and I thought to myself does anyone besides the consumer benefitfrom leaking an album. Does anyone get paid to leak an album?

    i think they get some money to. cause if its a hot artist you can sell it to the bootleggers and make litte tax free fortune. or it could just be forpromotional use only, but they gonna end up messing up alot of money

    Of course, the person that leaks from the factory gets $$$, plus most likely access to pretty much whatever they want (movies, games, etc.). The release groupis seen as the go-to group for rips and their access increases to a whole bushel of crap ...
