NEVER do A or B......the band's management would probably think you took it to make copies and were now pretending to be a "good samaritan"......and for that you would take a nice trip down to police headquarters where you would be interrogated for the better part of the day and you might wind up in the slammer...I don't think so

on what grounds? they cant lock you up for being a good samaritan.

If they have proof that you stole/leaked the disc and evidence supporting it then....yeah. But if the above scenario took place you could sue the living shit out of the record company and maybe even the cops.

Take it, rip it to my computer or iPod and whatnot, make a new account on Interference and pretend I'm one of the band members (probably The Edge since he's tech smart, though it's been done), and start leaking little 15 second good quality clips of the music to get everyone going crazy and flooding the topic.

Ok I wouldn't actually do that, but the mischief maker in me would love to

have track times been released yet?

it would be funny if someone made a playlist on iTunes of songs that matched the exact times of the album, renamed all the tracks to match, and waited to see if Universal freaked out when the songs started popping up on Last.FM and such.

E I'm a very honest guy, but not that honest... I would share it with my 3-4 friends who are also U2 fans and play the thing 20 times in a row for myself!

I'd probably just give it back. I wouldn't want to potentially keep the band from getting millions of dollars just so I could listen to their music a couple weeks early. Honestly, anyone who did that would have to have some pretty messed up priorities.

And the fact that it would be stealing.

If I got to meet the band and see Bono again, I wouldn't even listen to it I would return it immediately.

I'd return it to the band. I'm sure they'd show their appreciation and let me listen to it anyway.

Take it and keep it, but only for yourself

I actually miss the option: "Make a copy, but only for yourself, then do A"
