For The fucking ( yes, I don´t mind to put that word for those men ) principal management

What the hell do you think you are ?
Are you working for CIA or Pentagon ?
You can´t close ANY fan site just because those sites have links to the new U2 album, if you are so worried just close the links, BUT DON´T CLOSE ANY U2 FAN SITE. That stupid way to act is more like some politics that all we know where they comes from...
With such horrible acts the only thing you have as outcome is very upset fans and more and more fans wanting to put the forbidden link

Get a life, I like U2, but that doesn´t mean I must like every U2´s related working men

It makes no sense for Principal to get all riled up--people who d'load an early leak would most likely buy the album in the first week anyway, for those who download and do not buy, my feeling is that they would not have bought the album anyway. So whether the albums leaks before or after the release date seems moot to me.

Seems to me that the original message, supposedly from Principle, was a fake. Clicking on the link shows that the message has been taken down. Given everything that we know about Principle ("U2 at the End of the World", the fact that they've all been hand-picked by the four band members), that message never really sounded to me like it was for real. If anything, they'd've asked us to not burn and sell copies, and to spread the word about how much we liked it. More likely the posting came from a fan with a dial-up connection who couldn't download the songs, was jealous of those who had, and lashed out.

We've never had any official statement or word from Principle Management.

Yeah. PM's gonna piss off thousands of fans right before the release of a record that's been leaked. If they were that stupid, the company would've folded years ago.

Well, I can't physically download, but I don't think I would if I could.

Did my comment indicate a misunderstanding of the sitch? Tell me straight, Reggie. I know you will.

Actually... I was emailed a warning to remove a song from my site within 3 days or it'd be shut down... That was on a site I pay for. I had a second site that did get shut down without warning.

I'm just now stumbling into this thread, tho I read every post... I never saw an official statement from PM, so I can't comment on its authenticity. However, the intention was real and they are closing sites.

My advice to anyone hosting: Beware, be nice, be polite, & remove whatever files you're asked to remove. The law is on their side. (And yes, I checked it all out. As a u2 mp3 website owner/operator, I felt I should learn me some law bs.)

You got this email now? You've taken down your mp3's.

Was it your ISP that sent you the email?

Edited to say: Funny that it was Neon Lights that they asked you remove. That's almost funny.
