Blogger sentenced for leaking Guns N' Roses album


Blogger Kevin Cogill was sentenced to a year of probation for leaking the Guns N' Roses album "Chinese Democracy. Cogill also will serve two months of home confinement and record a public service announcement for the Recording Industry Association of America as part of his plea deal.

Cogill pleaded guilty earlier this year to one misdemeanor count of copyright infringement for posting nine tracks from the long-awaited Guns 'N Roses album last year.

He said in court Tuesday that he posted the tracks to promote the band, not hurt it.

A federal prosecutor had asked a judge to sentence Cogill to some prison time, but U.S. Magistrate Judge Paul Abrams said he felt Cogill had learned his lesson.
