US band Third Eye Blind weren’t too happy to see their new album Ursa Major leaked on P2P services last week, so have opted to stream it on their MySpace profile, while bringing its release forward a day to yesterday.”You know, if hackers/leakers think they are hurting ”the man” by leaking and posting albums on the internet, well… the artist is really the one who gets hurt,” says Missi Callazzo from label Megaforce Records.”Third Eye Blind owns their album, has their own imprint through us (an indie company with music fans) and control pretty much everything and make the majority of the money. I really can’t fathom why anyone would want to harm an artist?”The band are encouraging fans who downloaded the album illegally to make a donation to a local charity to ease their guilty consciences.
