Submission + - Band Manager Leaks Track, Then Blames Piracy

inotocracy writes: "When the band BuckCherry found out that their latest single had leaked on BitTorrent, they didn't try to cover it up or take the file down, instead they issued a press release where they stated: "Honestly, we hate it when this [snip] happens, because we want our FANS to have any new songs first." After a little bit of investigation, the uploader appears to be the band's manager Josh Klemme."

Submission + - Spam King Found Dead in Apparent Murder-Suicide.

Authorities said Davidson was the apparent gunman.
