This from the US Department of Justice in Los Angeles:
Special agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation this morning arrested a Culver City man on charges that he violated federal copyright laws by posting nine songs from Guns N’ Roses’ unreleased album Chinese Democracy on his website.
Kevin Cogill, who uses the online moniker “Skwerl,” admitted to investigators that he posted the songs on his website, www.antiquiet.com, according to a criminal complaint.
Cogill, 27, is expected to make his initial court appearance this afternoon in United States District Court in Los Angeles. If Cogill is convicted of the copyright infringement charges, he faces a maximum statutory sentence of three years in federal prison, or five years if proven that he did it for financial gain.
