2011 – Madonna: A 31-year-old man was arrested and charged on Wednesday for illegally leaking an early recording of a new Madonna song on the internet on This Day in Rock. The Demo of “Give Me All Your Love” was posted on the web in November, two months before the planned release of Madonna’s first new album since 2008’s “Hard Candy.” This was in Spain… FYI
Intellectual property watchdgos have targeted Spain as one of the world’s largest copyright violators. The Socialist government, which left office this week, prepared a bill aimed at shutting down file-sharing web sites providing copyrighted material. But the law was never sent to Parliament.
