Metallica's Lars Ulrich tries P2P: "I was like, 'You know what? I've gotta try this.' So we sat there, and thirty minutes later, I had 'Death Magnetic' in my computer. It was kind of bizarre."

But that doesn't mean you should. You're not Lars Ulrich: "I was like, 'Wow, this is how it works.' I figured if there is anybody that has a right to download 'Death Magnetic' for free, it's me." Still, nice to know that nearly 10 years after his "Napster Bad" days, he's finally figuring out what exactly he was waging a futile war against. Better late than never. [Blabbermouth]

Hmmm... I wonder how many people he seeded to during that time. And technically, could they get in trouble for downloading Death Magnetic, considering that he himself was giving it to them?
