Earlier this year, we wrote about how Sony's Epic label had refused to release an album of songs by singer Fiona Apple, claiming that they didn't hear a "hit" in it (probably as determined by some computer). However, somehow, the songs were leaked and a DJ started playing them and people started downloading them and the whole thing became quite a hit. It seems that with all of that background, Epic has finally decided it would be okay to release the album. Of course, with changes in copyright law, instead of just facing civil copyright infringement charges, whoever leaked such an album today would be facing criminal felony charges, for having the gall to let people hear music that a music label won't release.
