I don't really get these people "breaking up" with P as if he was their boyfriend... My interest may fade but I wouldn't know how to "break up" with an artist, let alone dramatically like that, this is silly...

Track 9 on this


http://www.allmusic.com/a...0002415120



i've always wondered if he got permission, it's not even the correct title...


[Edited 1/22/14 4:11am]



Was In A Large Room With No Light technically released. I know we all have the "official" version, but, was it released, or was it a temporary stream that was not "supposed" to be saved? IIRC, it's the latter...


Maybe Allan Smithee doesn't know the real title (only heard bootlegs), maybe he's trying to obscure it so Prince won't notice?


[Edited 1/22/14 7:22am]



Some German band had already released that song (on WB Europe IIRC!!!) in the late 80's or early 90's under a false title and got away with it. Allan Smithee's album dates back from 2009 but IDK what month. I guess if it was after the song was streamed it could be legal even though IDK if covers are free for songs that were only aired or streamed as they are for songs that received proper release (I guess there's no law about that and it would need to be ruled by a judge). There's another problem here, though: Prince never copyrighted IALRWNL at ASCAP (I've just checked) so basically I guess you can't cover a song if it's not copyrighted because u can't pay the royalties. So now thanks to you posting about it here I guess this poor guy's life is ruined for P will sue his life away from him neutral

[Edited 1/22/14 8:46am]






Also an R&B singer called Wil Key released officially a version called Welcome to The Ratrace, it's on amazon, I have it. He would've had to have permission to record an unreleased song surely.

This thread is incredible, really. Once again, Prince doesn't hate his fans, Prince hates people who infringe his rights as an artist. I'm not saying his suit is proportioned, but it's certainly better than not suing. I guess you'd love that someone stole you, not your money, but something much more precious than that: your artistic creations.

Yes it was!!! It proves Prince really does care about his REAL fans, MALE & female. But U should consider getting all the moderators together and making a decision, 2 shut this site down completely! Its become too negative and full of evil RATCHET people...

u people need to stop insulting him EVERYTIME this stuff happens...he knows what hes doing

Well I'm always defending Prince here but on this one I can understand the anger. Putting the sites down is one thing and it's fair enough, but asking people who probably have ordinary incomes and never made a profit of their sharing activities to pay 1 million bucks is basically condemning them to starvation for the rest of their lives. I'm quite certain, though, as stated above, that Prince will withdraw charges before it gets to that, but the mere idea of him not doing so is atrocious: can you imagine the panic the dudes behind these sites must be in?

Not only are they not making a profit--they're losing money with the expenses of having the sites and all.

As to luvsexy4all--all right, let's accept that he knows what he's doing. So, he's threatening to ruin the lives of people who have not really harmed him in anyway and are motivated by a love of his music and a feeling of community with others who also love it, and he knows it. That just seems to be more reason to be disappointed in his behavior.

If Prince actually follows through with suing for monetary damages at $1 million per defendant, he'll make more money from NOT releasing the bootlegged material himself than he would if he released it.



This is why we'll NEVER get official vault releases. He can make more money off of suing the bootleggers than selling the music himself.

Is it true that he's only going after sites that share freely rather than those that are charging?

And...if he's suing and stuff does that mean he's about to release something? Maybe more of an indication that he is than any twitter or whatever?

Guess technically it's illegal so he's free to sue, it is his intellectual property etc, and yes, he should release it all and make stacks, but since when has that made a difference? Difficult one. But like I've said elsewhere, in the past year we've had serpangate, le petit princegate and more recently astral travelling until 01/07/14 (is that how u guys write it)gate...but we'll be back, and we'll lap it up cos that's what we do...

...and isnt he indignance and being pissed off and annoyed all part of the journey?

Even if this would go to court and Prince wins that is no guarantee that

he would get 1 million. That would be determined after a verdict is reached.
