Several sites offering U2 bootlegs have (been) shut down over the last couple of weeks, including the popular and might we say essential U2bloodredsky.com.
The upcoming updated edition of the highly regarded book “U2 Live – A concert documentary” could not have been written without mp3 resources in general, and U2bloodredsky.com in particular. The current author of the book fears further updates will suffer greatly if access to source material is made more difficult.
U2 have stated in the past that concert bootlegging is OK with them as long as it’s not for commercial purposes. Now fans are wondering whether sharing their material electronically will get them sued. Do U2 know the RIAA are going after their fans?
