i dont know if im correct but, i think someone who gets a hold of either an un mastered version of an album or an actual copy of an album, could be a friend of the band,group,mc or whatever or it could be the engineer or the producer, who accidentally leak it on the internet(making it available to the internet world)or it could be done on purpose, but i think that is one of method of how an album can be leaked. for instance the person will rip it on to thier computer and then may not have a firewall set up or may have thier get file set up on aim,and someone will check it grab and then distribute it to thier friends and then its passed on and on, nah mean?

i have the new Underoath album "Define The Great Line" its not mastered but thier album doesnt come out untill the summer, and its only april and i have it.

I consider a Leak to be a retail version not a advance... Most leaks are leaked on purpose...

They won't.... 50 Cent was the most downloaded rapper of the last year, and he holds 1st place by sold CD's

I think its all because of disloyal people in your crew. Watch your enemies close and your friends closer...

Well it all happens on the internet. I think the number one way is through torrent files because those get everywhere, but for all that to start someone has to get a copy and make a torrent file or just put it on any kind of file-sharing program. I think some are intentional, but somehow a lot of them get stolen. No idea how that shit gets stolen so easily though.

Actually there's a couple of ways for an album to get leaked...

The computer in the studio may be hooked up to a file sharing program and they store the tracks on there.

2. Once you hand in your album for completion for packaging and the whole shabang, the record exec copies the album gets an under the table price and boom... it just so happens.

3. Some one who knows the studio connects an outline recorder through the patch bay without you noticing and as the engineer plays the album in full they are recording the shit.

4. Handing out unmixed versions of the album to your boys and they copy for a friend and a friend copies it for a friend and so on and so on ...

basically the artists have to be weary.
