First, I hope I am not breaking any rules by making this thread. I am NOT asking for links or names to any blogs or downloads with this thread.

Anyway, has there been some legislation passed in the past year or so that has killed posting download links to albums on blogs? I used to be able to find albums on blogs through google no problem, but now I have a hard time finding album downloads for recent albums. In fact, I can pretty much only ever find any on one particular site, which is a message board and not a blog (and it often still doesn't have what I'm looking for). And please don't ask what site I am talking about because I am not going to tell you. I'm trying to avoid getting this thread locked.

EDIT: Before I get scolded for not supporting bands, I would just like to point out I use free downloading to decide which CDs I want to buy.

I don't know whether any legislation has been passed or anything, but for what it's worth, I downloaded something from a link on a blog just a couple of weeks ago.

I find a lot of big troves of albums were lost when a lot of file hosting sites went down. Most of the links are long dead as a result. I cant speak for new stuff though.

Yes, I have run into that a lot too. :-D For new stuff I can never find any links, working or dead.

Yeah, when MegaUpload went down, the other big file hosting sites (Rapidshare, Mediafire, etc.) got paranoid so started wiping all that stuff and staying on top of taking down re-uploaded stuff. Around the same time it seems like blogs themselves started getting taken down more and more, so while it's definitely still possible to get stuff from blogs it's becoming more and more difficult to do so.

It's all about Russian message boards these days.
