Ok dude listen up…. The record company has to ship out the cd almost 2 weeks prior to the actual release date so when that date comes, the stores can put it on the shelves. There would be no possible way for the record company to ship out the need amount of cd’s to EVERY store in the country on the drop date. That means that any person working at say Target, or Best Buy, or Sam Goody has the perfect opportunity to take a copy from the shipment, and copy it and make links to the music. Understand now?
