do you come here often? - PR Errors

do you come here often? - PR Errors:
"In these days when CD burning technology is available in every office, they maintain that their strict limits on promotional copies prevent them from giving me any. Not even if I beg. It transpires that it's part of a crackdown on piracy, to stop albums being punted around peer-2-peer networks weeks before release. Thus by mustering all my internet savvy, I managed to download both records in their entirety within 45 minutes. It's terrible when you have to indulge in practices bordering on illegality in order to give publicity to bands you don't necessarily like very much."

Fear of P2P driving legitimate users to P2P for legitimate promotional purposes! let's hear it for giants shooting themselves in the foot!
