I'm-a shoot a bootlegger!
Now that’s some dedication.
Are you that devoted of a fan?
- For all five of you who haven’t heard the term, a bootlegger is a person who illegally uploads the album for free via file-sharing sites or torrents (in ye olden days, it referred to someone who copied and sold the actual physical records). And while the usage wouldn’t be exactly correct, he’s probably referring to the people who download it as well.
The term bootlegging itself stems from bootleg liquor that is produced illicitly and may be sold under a well known brand name to increase sales. The most popular period of bootlegging was of course during American prohibition and the term is now used interchangeably with “knock-off” for physical goods and “pirated copy” for digital goods.
