About Court In The Act.

No albums are hosted here. All files must be deleted 24 hours after download, as they are for review and criticism purposes only - provided you follow this guideline, downloading from Court In The Act is legal as per s30(1) of the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. If any copyright holder has a problem with their material being posted here, get in touch and I will remove it. Let me know if any links are broken, I'll remove the post to prevent future annoyance, and will attempt to re-upload the file.

Comments make our work worthwhile. If you really enjoyed an album, tell us about it, we'd love to hear from you. If you hated it, tell us why.

Although music is a major part of all of our lives, we all have some form of external life. If there are periods in which no posts are added, I'm sorry, but that's how things happen. Even though I love blogging like this, sometimes I can't muster up the desire within myself to write about yet another album.

I'd like to say too that Court In The Act will never be run for personal profit. This means no advertisement, no premium schemes, and no LinkBucks. Megaupload is used because it strikes a fair balance between ease of upload and ease of download.

On Megaupload

Hey guys, JohnRCC here. It may trouble you to know (and it sure as hell troubles us) that file host Megaupload has been shut down by the American government, for allegedly "running an international criminal enterprise centered on copyright infringement on the Internet".

This means that any albums posted on the blog which were hosted on Megaupload (like, 95% of them) will no longer work. As Persona101 mentioned in his post, we'll try and get all affected albums back up on alternate hosts, but we have kind of a lot to get through, so bear with us in that respect.

It's an eerie coincidence that just as all the discussion of SOPA/PIPA seems to be coming to a head, something like this should happen. A stark warning then, I suppose, of what may occur much more often if these acts are passed and a reminder everywhere for fans of music to help do something about it, be it contacting your local politicians or signing petitions whichever which way you can.

As for future posts on Court in the Act, for me at least I will be posting albums hosted on Mediafire, but it's a damn shame that such a fine file host should go under (just think of all the porn that has been lost!).

Here's an article on the closure of Megaupload.
