A man accused of illegally posting songs on the Internet from an unreleased album by Guns N' Roses has agreed to plead guilty, a federal prosecutor said today (Nov. 11).
Kevin Cogill will enter his guilty plea to one federal count of copyright infringement at a hearing on Dec. 8, said Craig Missakian, assistant U.S. attorney.
The FBI said Cogill posted nine tracks from the highly anticipated Guns N' Roses album "Chinese Democracy" on the Web site Antiquiet.com. The album will be released on Nov. 23 exclusively in Best Buy stores. They did not disclose how Cogill, who has no known direct connection to the band, obtained the songs.
