Statement from Walt Freleng, legal department, SKiN GRAFT Records:
After consulting both bands, we have decided to make this unsanctioned PRE / AIDS WOLF release available for lawful distribution. Skin Graft Records takes the protection of its artist’s rights very seriously. This record and its packaging are flagrant violations of those rights and its production is an entirely unethical and reprehensible act. It is our intention to prosecute the parties responsible to the fullest extent, and we hope that the swift kick dealt to the perpetrator’s very minor intellectual properties will serve as a warning to other would be pirates.
