Kevin Cogill, who leaked Guns N Roses’ ‘Chinese Democracy’ onto the internet ahead of its release last year, could get a six month jail term if the FBI get their way. Wired magazine report that federal prosecutors want Kevin Cogill to get a six month prison sentence with prosecutor Craig Missakian saying “Making a pre-release work available to the worldwide public over the internet where it can be copied without limit is arguably one of the more insidious forms of copyright infringement”. Cogill could also face a $371,622 fine. Sentencing is set for May 4th.
