The LAT’s Scott Glover reports:

A man accused of posting nine previously unreleased songs by the rock band Guns N’ Roses on a website where they could be accessed by the public was arrested at his home early today on suspicion of violating federal copyright laws, authorities said.

Kevin Cogill, 27, is accused of posting the songs, which were being prepared for commercial release, on the Internet blog Antiquiet in June, according to an arrest affidavit. The site received so much traffic after the songs were posted that it crashed, the affidavit states.

We don’t know what’s more shocking – that the feds have nothing better to do than arrest fanboys or that Guns N’ Roses have fanboys.

The really annoying early adopters in your office started a spittle-in-the-corners-of-their-mouths discussion that started at 9 and will end sometime in March.

This lead by Alana Semuels just isn’t it: “Howard Stern is making some Sirius money on the first anniversary of his satellite radio premiere. The shock jock on Tuesday became the stock jock with the disclosure that he and his agent were awarded $82.9 million in Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. shares as a bonus for helping the company exceed a subscriber forecast made when he was lured away from over-the-air radio.”
