Soundfiles belonged to Luca Pessina, writer for the Metalitalia webzine and news editor for the Italian edition of Metal Hammer with Pessina’s personal watermark showing up on all of the files.

Nuclear Blast Records has stated that legal steps are already in progress, with Pessina possibly facing charges and indemnity claims.

What's the lesson here folks? When a CD says "Don't even think about distributing this, we've got it tracked" umm THEN DON'T!!!
