Guns N Roses Blogger Arrested Over 'Chinese Democracy Leak'

August 28, 2008
Guns N Roses Blogger Arrested Over 'Chinese Democracy Leak'An American blogger has been arrested for posting nine songs purported to be from the new Guns'N'Roses album onto the internet.

27-year-old Kevin Cogill was taken into custody on Wednesday (August 27th) on suspicion of violating federal copyright laws.

The FBI began launched an investigation in June after Cogill posted the songs on his website, Antiquiet.

The leak included six tracks that had appeared before in unfinished form and three songs - 'Rhiad and the Bedouins', 'If the World' and an unnamed track – that were all apparently new productions.

Cogill, who removed the tracks shortly after posting them, could have caused a "significant" profit loss for the band, prosecutors said.

He has been ordered to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on September 17th

Production on 'Chinese Democracy', which was last scheduled for release in March 2007, originally began in 1994 and has cost the band's frontman Axl Rose a reported $13million.

Earlier this year, drinks company Dr Pepper promised each American citizen a free drink if the band released the album before the end of 2008.
