I thought I'd publish this comment from my April 26 post in regards new Band of Horses material. I researched Web Sheriff and discovered it is a London, UK-based service that specializes in the protection of on-line rights against infringements and abuse.
Web Sheriff's clients include record labels, music publishers, pop stars, film companies, film stars, celebrities, sports personalities, theatre producers, book publishers, video companies, games companies, national newspapers and the media generally. Check out the Web Sheriff website here if you are so inclined, otherwise, check out what happend when I got pulled over (I was let go with a warning ...).
On behalf of Columbia Records and Band of Horses, many thanks for plugging "Infinite Arms" on your site (street date 17th May UK & Europe / 18th May North America) ... .. thanks, also, on behalf of the artist and labels for not posting any pirate links to unreleased (studio) material and, if you / your readers want good quality, non-pirated, preview tracks, then a full length version of "Factory" is available for fans and bloggers to link to / post / host etc on the band’s site at www.bandofhorses.com ... .. for further details of the new album, pre-orders, on-line promotions, videos and 2010 shows, check-out the official site, as well as the band’s MySpace at www.myspace.com/bandofhorses ... .. and keep an eye on these official sources for details of further news, preview material and on-line promotions.
Also and as a goodwill gesture to fans and bloggers, an exclusive widget for the video of “Compliments”, as well as a preview stream of “Laredo” are currently available via the band’s official website ... .. these are for embedding and hyper-linking ONLY / for streaming by fans directly off the band’s site, so please reciprocate this goodwill gesture by NOT ripping and re-posting the audio files.
Thanks again for your plug.

Does this make me a Web outlaw? Yee-haw.
