Speaking of Usher, some 555,000 people torrented “various incarnations” of Here I Stand between last Monday, when the album leaked in full, and Friday, according to BitTorrent statistics obtained by Digital Music News. And those numbers don’t even include the many Rapidshare/Sendspace/Megaupload locations of the album, numbers that have probably put even more of a dent in the pre-release acquisition total since clicking on a link to some vaguely legal file-sharing site is way, way less bandwidth-taxing than the whole “steal and steal alike” setup that BitTorrent is based on.
