Kevin Cogill Gets House Arrest


Kevin Cogill, the Guns N Roses' Chinese Democracy uploader gets house arrest, Kevin Cogill was handed one year probation and two months’ home confinement after he was agreeing to produce an anti-piracy message.

Guns N Roses's latest album, Chinese Democracy was released in November, was cost millions and took 17 years to complete. After 'stealing' the album and uploaded it to the internet before the official release, Kevin Cogill was arrested and found guilty. Cogill faced a maximum of a year in prison and the amount of infringement equaled $371,000. After agreed to help produce an anti-piracy public service address with the RIAA, the government withdrew the $371,000 figure and agreed not to fine him.

He informed the authorities that he received the music online and unsolicited — a confession prosecutors said might pave the way for more “targets” to be prosecuted. Cogill uploaded nine songs from the 14-track album on June 18, 2008. Court records show he confessed to the FBI. The case was cracked by an investigator with the RIAA.



Lesson from this news, beware of what you are sharing in the internet, you might become the next Kevin Cogill. Seriously dude, no piracy!
