When music/tv/films leak, do you listen to/watch them? Or do you wait until official release? Of course, leaks have been quite controversial with it really upsetting some artists. In fact recently a fan got arrested/police investigated (icr which one it was I'll find more info later) for leaking some of Lana Del Rey's music.

I have to say, I have 0 morals and will listen/watch kink.gif I never download leaks properly, just use them to listen out of curiosity so the artist will eventually get my streams, so I don't lose too much sleep over it ohmy.gif

if it's on the internet / out there i will watch it see it stream it... i'm not a frequent buyer of any of it as streaming has completely dominated the way we consume media and has been shaped to do so so what do they expect tbh xxxx

yeah that's an interesting point! i was watching a porn documentary the other day, and it sucked to see people who were proper in the industry having to lose some of their artistic approach because of the way it's so easy to access for free nowadays. i do think overall it does suck out the quality of the content people get, even in music/tv some things feel rushed out there just to BE there but at the same time, i do nothing to help this situation :') consumerist society!!

I happily watch leaks, I just feel bad for like a minute then get over it and enjoy the leak ~

My fave was a couple of years ago when the first 4 episodes of Game of Thrones leaked out *.*

music - yes! i always listen to a song/album if it leaks and I am interested in it kink.gif
Films - don't think I've ever watched a film before it's been released in cinemas! And I don't think any TV shows I watch have leaked in advance!

It depends. I was all over the MKS leak like a rash but tend not to care so much about TV/Film - mainly because Film leaks tend to be shite quality and I'm such a quality snob.

If you've no made it legally available for me in the UK you can shove it, I'll have that ta.

It depends, usually I can wait but Paramore's last album leaked and I did listen to what I could :') I also gave in and started watching OITNB which leaked a few days ago, I will still buy the stuff though which kinda justifies it a bit more in my head laugh.gif

No for music. Haven't done it since Symphony by Clean Bandit came out (oddly specific but that was the last song I listened to thanks to a leak, thanks Joseph for that one biggrin.gif), I prefer to wait for the songs to actually be released these days. If there's a preview I'll happily listen to it but I'd rather hear a song when it's released everywhere else than be fed up of it by the time it actually comes out.

(also, I do try to download stuff as much as possible! I spend about a fiver a week on songs, I just have the songs I REALLY love downloaded as it's worth it if I'm genuinely loving a song)

When new singles leak online a few hours in advance (because of the New Zealand release etc) then I tend to ignore it until midnight, but I'm less strict with albums. Sometimes it's fun to wait until I buy the CD though, keeps the excitement going! I always buy albums I enjoy on CD anyway so I don't see it as such a bad thing, and I like to download songs legally as and when I'm able to.

I never watch leaks of TV episodes (last Saturday's Doctor Who episode leaked online due to an iTunes error but I never once felt the urge to seek it out), definitely ruins the fun of waiting. Having said that, when Under the Dome was shown in the UK several weeks later for each episode, I watched the last couple online kink.gif I don't watch films at all so not a bother for me ~

EDIT: mdh exposing me !! that was when Zara's album leaked a week early, poor hen kink.gif

You also gave it to me, Joseph ha pirate kink.gif Reporting you to Alex Range.

I honestly don't care tbh, if I like the song/album I'll end up streaming it on Spotify anyway! I don't actually watch many movies/TV Shows so I can't comment on that, but if there was one I was desperate to see my morals would go out the window again most likely :')

I'm kind of the opposite, I'm not bothered about seeking out music released early (tbh most artists I actively follow don't get leaked that much) unless it's easy to get to like YouTube etc, I just look at official release dates. I still buy all my music as well, got a huge collection (#downwithstreaming. Generally that is, I still do the file share with friends thing and occasional YouTube convert), stopped illegally downloading years ago because I like the guaranteed quality of purchased music and I like supporting artists I love.

TV shows I really want to watch that don't happen to be on Prime or on easy to access TV channels? Perfectly happy to putlocker it.

I tend to just listen/watch whatever leaks I'm interested in laugh.gif It doesn't tend to happen to TV, I think OITNB is the first big one for me and I HAD to. Like Lotti said, it's netflix and I'm paying my subscription regardless so it doesn't matter really. Either way I tend to just go for leaks if I really want to hear or see it.

I don't really listen to leaks, but then again it'll take me at least half a week to listen to the song anyway (and that's if it's an artist I like). I don't really watch anything on TV which would be popular enough to get leaked laugh.gif

I don't listen to leaks personally. I am bad enough at listening to albums when they are released, let alone before they come out laugh.gif and I am even worse for watching TV shows and Movies so I have never sought out leaks before for those either.
