All tag results for piracy
Don’t even think about messing with Queen Bey, because it’ll most definitely cost you!!
Back in June of 2011, Beyoncé released her album 4, but it had already been leaked online 16 days beforehand!
Now Sony Music has filed a lawsuit against a Swedish man who they believe uploaded it to The Pirate Bay, a torrent website!
So, just how much are they seeking in damages??
The papers filed say Sony is suing for $233,000, for not only leaking the album, but damaging their relationship with Bey and taking a toll on her own reputation, as well!
The man, who’s currently not being named, is believed to have gotten his hands on 4 in advance through some music industry connections of his!
Guess this should be taken as a warning for the other music pirates out there!
We hope this doesn’t happen again with Beyoncé’s upcoming album that she’s working on… as much as we can't wait to hear it!

The internet has been banding together over the last few weeks to fight the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) and PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) and has just gained a very powerful ally — the White House!
In a statement responding to two petitions against the bills from the House of Representatives and the Senate, the Obama administration officials wrote:
Well aint that some sh*t!
Looks like the people fighting piracy are doing it themselves! Well, by representation anyways…
Employees from major movie, tv, and music studios have been caught illegally downloading the tv series, new albums, unreleased movies, etc!
For example, an employee at NBC Universal was caught with the entire first season of Game of Thrones. And a Fox employee had Super 8!
What do U think about this, perezcious readers??
