i'd never heard of vine before, but now i know it's a place to see prince videos. now that's a masterclass in viral marketing

i guess the guy who made a site that has videos of a maximum length of 6 seconds suffers from premature ejaculation

"Fortunately, the nature of the DMCA’s Safe Harbor provision is such that as long as Vine or any other online service takes down infringing media after a complaint, they’re legally in the clear. The Prince incident (Princident?) perfectly illustrates while all the clamor over SOPA and PIPA last year was perfectly well-founded: had the bills passed, the artist and his label would have been on firm footing to sue Twitter over the offending Vines."

What GREAT NEWS! lol

Prince is a hard dude to understand. No amount of books can explain his behavior when it comes it this.

Cool!

Maybe we'll see that crack team of black female lawyers of his. I want to see them strutting their stuff behind him in a new Robert Palmer-esque video headbang

Surprising, but must be because there were lots of fans making vids and taking pics with their cell phones at that SXSW event that weekend, that ended up on Vine.

It really isn't. Prince is just batshit crazy.

I'd just like paragraphs back on the org.

^ No, it's all about control. Prince simply doesn't like anybody taking his music and doing whatever with it without his permission. Whatever is made public must be authorised. It's not even about money in essence, but as soon as others are aiming to take his succes and profit from it, the control mode is full on.

I am one of those fans that really just likes his music anymore. And not (What I know of) his personality. I can't imagine being buddies sad If I were to ever meet him in person I would rather argue our respective spiritual apologetics, rather than gush about how fantasic he is ("The Cross" breaks my heart to hear, knowing he doesn't believe that anymore, yet I still do).

I think a lot of his fans are like that. Wow, he is so amazing musically...but...we shouldn't hang out...I might get sued.

Or maybe its all blown out off proportion and there is stuff we don't know and the media just makes him look bad...(that is my secret hope! Its all a cruel trick!)

I mean I just spent some of my last dollars on tixx, so I know that I'm a true blue fan...but...yikes!

(I could write more than the 176 pages than Toure wrote on him, but so could a lot of orgers...I already wrote a senior 20 page paper about him 10 years ago LOL)

Maybe that makes me an anti-fan? (Like how alternative heroes are called anti-heroes?)

I wish he would not sue fans. I wish he believed in the internetz too

Trufax: My daddy told me the he and mom went to Purple Rain in a Seattle Theater. They were so moved by the movie that they went into the record store and bought the album immediately. They went home and conceived me.

Since Prince can't shut down the books of Toure and Jason Draper, he has to go after entities that share his music. Unfortunately for P, freedom of speech includes journalists but he has more clout when it comes to intellectual property. When he said he doesn't believe in "free goods", and in that context, I understand where he is coming from. In this instance, this is just overzealousness to protect copyright infringement.

Yep.

Jehovah is behind a lot of his actions, and just like any religion - it is hard to understand if you are not involved in it. So don't blame him - blame religion.

Thanks Larry!!

(but I guess if it had not been Larry it would have been some other old religious dude)

He's a little nutty with it, but he's just trying to control HIS content.

He knows there's no money in the internet anymore for artists so...

Uh, I love Prince like a brother. His music means more to me than just about anything in my life. I owe him so much....but I'm one of those honest people...with my family and friends. I will comment on the good, the bad, and even the ugly.... Prince is batshit crazy. I hate to say it, but this guy does things THAT HURT HIS ABILITY TO MAKE MONEY....he says downloaded music has "No Soul," in an interview, and then releases DOWNLOADS in less than a year after saying that.

He removes the RNR Love Affair video promoting his music...that he PUT ON YOU TUBE, and takes it off. He shouts from the top of the hills about "Real Music by Real Musicians," and then sings over a backing tape of his songs during "Prince Karaoke," which fans nicely refer to as a "Sampler Set."

If those short examples are not proof he is batshit crazy, then you are in the ass kiss camp where he can do no wrong...where all things are positive...a few examples of those people:

1. Tony M was the best rapper ever, even when he rapped about Manure in My Name Is Prince

2. Tony M, Kirk Johnson, and Damon D were "High Fashion" when they wore their Star Trek Next Generation outfits.

3. When Shelby Johnson is not allowed to use her fantastic singing voice, she is forced to turn into a crowd flunky by screaming at the top of her lungs for fans to "Put Your Hands Up." This is true art. Shelby is not actually a crowd flunky, but she is a literary genius and is just expressing herself in a way Prince invented.

A normal person would not believe any of those 3 things unless they have little or no ability to tell the truth about Prince.

"Hello, Welcome to the Dawn...You've Just become an official member of the New Power Generation." "Your NPG Lunchbox and Membership Card will be in the mail soon." "This lame interlude will get worse each year you own this album."

He doesn't understand the power of free advertising?

Instead of playing to empty seats, maybe the Stade De France would have been full the other year if he allowed it. Not to mention Italy and where ever else he failed to sell out.

That hall of fame clip on youtube gathers such amazing comments. People love the guy if only they can see him. It's such a shame he seemingly doesn't like showing the world who is boss. It's not idolatry, it's about being a fucking teacher and passing on his skills. He should be inspiring people to play music.

People are coming into this world and are forced to watch and listen to crap. He should be part of an alternative to this spoonfed rubbish on the radio. He should be a force, a presence demanding change.

Instead he likes to moan and occasionally talk the same old bollocks and pretty much do no good at all.

Real music by real musicians? He should fucking put up or just hang it up.

He should be flooding the internet with old and new live performances.

Sooooo frustrating.
