Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Irish rockers U2 might bring forward the release date of their next album because pirate copies of it are turning up on peer-to-peer networks.

The album How to Dismantle an Atomic Bomb is due in the shops on 22 November.

Earlier in the year a hard copy of the album disappeared from a photo shoot, leading to fears it would be pirated. Lead singer Bono said at the time that if this happened the band would bring forward the release date and offer legal downloads via iTunes.

A spokesman for the band told Reuters they were aware of the dodgy copies but had made no decision on bringing forward the official release date. The first single from the album hit the shelves yesterday. ®
