I brought all 3 singles today...
will be getting the Delxue album, will be waiting for the store to open.

most of us here i'm sure are doing that....

Kennardo is spot on, they'll sell a 'Shitload' and make about the same.

They can resolve the problem by releaseing the album earlier.

The album will not sell any less. If its good, and it damn well is, people buy it. I know I for one like having the real thing in my hand (ooerrrr.....meaning the album), with the booklet etc and proper CD. Piracy only ruins sales if the music thats being released is crap and then people buy it find the album is crap and don't buy the real thing. This has happened in my case, although I wasn't going to buy the REM album in the first case, I downloaded REM's new album and found that it was crap so haven't bought it. First REM album I haven't bought since 1988 their music really has hit rock bottom. Now U2's album is great and I have had it on order for a couple of months and just cos it has been leaked does not mean I will cancel it, nooooooooo, all that has done has given me a nice preview of a great album and there's always FAST CARS too look forward to.

I agree with Jaxx. I will buy the album, deluxe edition so no worries Principle Management, we'll do our best to keep the leak under wraps.

There are millions of people out there who download music so that they wouldn't actually have to buy it. Not everyone claims to be as "generous and faithful" like the bunch of "fans" in these U2 web sites.

Try using better language to get across your point.

FYI, U2 already were guaranteed the $ from their 10 CD contract.
Ppl stealing music are hurting the labels not U2.
However, byproduct may be less guarantees in future contracts from label esp. if band doesn't help lessen piracy.

Caylan -

NO personal attacks - I edited your post and Zoomerang's quote of your comment. You are welcome to disagree but please do not call other people names.

My bad, I thought you were putting down ppl who WERE NOT downloading because of their own personal reasons.
My apologies.
