Coldplay Can't Avoid Internet Leak

Just days before its official U.S. release, Coldplay's X&Y has been leaked online

Though modern technology can help you a lot, it would sometimes also endanger your "life." One of the modern technology misuse victims is band Coldplay. The music group has been put in jeopardy after their new album "X&Y" leaked online just days before its official U.S. and U.K. release.

The Internet jacking has obviously shocked either Coldplay or their label, EMI/Capitol, who all so concerned about keeping the disc from appearing online by sending out limited, watermarked review discs for select journalists under a false name and allowed other music critics to review the album by setting up listening rooms in the corporate offices in London, Los Angeles and New York with iPods in locked cabinets.

Commenting on the album leak, EMI spokeswoman says "Obviously any leak is bad and we're not happy about the fact that it's already on the net. However, the flack noted the fact that the record will hit the street officially in a matter of days. We're kind of okay with it--It could be a lot worse."
