We're seeing more and more bands realizing that when albums leak, it's not the end of the world, and, in fact, that there are ways to take advantage of that. Simon Bodger points us to the news that the band the Foo Fighters appears to recognize this completely. After discovering that their new album had leaked, the band went to Facebook, and noted that it was "Rad" that the album had leaked because they were "starting to think no one cared," and then noted that "our version sounds better," and pointed people to a streamable version of the album instead.
Seems like a more effective way to build up happy fans, rather than to tear them down...
