A without a doubt, cos I will take it to Bono in the hope he would reward me and when he doesn't I'd leak the crap outta it from a nuclear Proof bomb shelter

I chose F, leak it, but it depends how much of a risk I would be taking. If I had a job in play or something like that I probably wouldn't do it, but if I figured that the chances of getting caught were slim I would definately do it. Why not? I don't even consider this an 'ethical dilemna', and I consider myself a highly ethical/moral person! Honestly I don't see the big deal about the album leaking a bit before it's supposed to be out, as long as it is the finished product.

Hurting sales? Come on... that makes no difference. The album will be available for free all over once it's out, like any other music nowadays. People who don't want to buy won't anyways, it doesn't matter if it's leaked early or not. For the most part, the people who listen to leaked albums are pretty serious fans who will buy the album when it's out anyways.

I think just listening to it and keeping it for yourself is quite selfish!

C. I couldn't possibly be the sole responsible person for the huge world-over leak. But again, I couldn't possible just send it back, having waited soooo long.

I'd return it straight away and be considered a loyal fan by the U2 company.

where is "burn your own copy for yourself and then give it to somebody else who you know full well will leak it so that he can have the blood on his hands and you can feel guilt free even though it's your fault anyways" as a choice?

I'd listen to it and then return it to the band. I'm all about karma for the good tickets.

B, modified. I'd listen to it 50 times and have it playing loudly in the background while I called the appropriate people to turn it in.

After more than four years waiting for it I know that I couldn't resist listening to it, but after that I would return it to the band, just to let them sleep comfortably, I would like to burn a copy only for me, but I'm almost sure I wouldn't be able to due to this guilty thing I was taught when I was a child.

B.) I am planning not to listen until I have it on the disc, so at that point, I would absolutely have to listen once. Then, I would give it right back. I dont like torrets, halfs out of order, track by track, out of order leaks, that is worse for fans IMO. I was reading the bomb leak thread and getting it song by song seemed like it would ruin it for me.

I voted for B, but considering the damned thing would be out already by the time I figured out how the heck I was supposed to send it back to them, it wouldn't even matter anymore.
