This is a post from my father's Blog - InsideMusicMedia - where he blasts Prince as the MOST unlikely person to start filing law suits.
This time, the purple one is mad because fans are posting his performances on You Tube. After a number of smart moves that shows he knows the new music consumer - this one reverts back to an old standard - using the fans - that the RIAA proved enthusiastically didn't work.
My take is: Prince should take every lick of free publicity he can get for his new record because as a LONG TIME fan I can say the new record stinks.
