Yes, part of the business model for using free music to your advantage is recognizing how that free music acts as a promotional good for you, but the band BuckCherry seems to have taken that a bit too far. It definitely seemed quite suspicious
when the band, signed to a major label, put out a press release
about how angry they were that their latest music was leaked online. So, the good folks over at TorrentFreak did a little investigating, and tracked down the fact that whoever leaked the album just so happened to use the same exact IP address as the band's manager
So, let's try this again. Using free music as a promotional tool can work wonders, but part of that is in publicly embracing
the fact that your fans want to share your music. Not creating mock outrage about it.
