    New anti-bootleg campaign has been kicked off

    It looks that a new bootleggers hunting season has arrived.

    First (a month ago) they took down a couple of sites selling boots, in particular Disc Japan:

    A few days ago they seemingly targeted IMWAN forum, which posted the news on new grey-zone releases with links to the items sold on Amazon:

    Interestingly, both DiscJapan and IMWAN domains were .com, which may explain their vulnerability to the US court decisions.

    Cobra handling and cocaine use are a bad mix.

    No wonder I couldn't get on IMWAN; I use them to check out new releases. Damn...

    With all the trading and free sharing that's out there, let these greedy bastards pay the price.

    Unless you want lossless. But, I am a big fan of Sugarmegs.

    I don't need lossless. I don't have a sound system good enough for it to matter.

    I don't need lossless, either. But Sugarmegs is very low bit rate and not even indexed. It's great for streaming on my computer, but that's about it.

    Once again, I LOVE Sugarmegs, but it's not the end all, be all, when it comes to collecting unreleased recordings; that's for sure.
