it's nice to see peoples' concern over all this, but frankly, there are far worse things to put a stop to and take a stand for than a petty-assed lawsuit being aimed at a pop star.


Yeah, and there is also more to do than to live on this fucking website everyday talking about a certain pop star, and having a cute little sacastic remark for every post that someone makes. The shit gets old.

Flame all you want, I won't be on here to read the dumb shit.

Hmmm...look at the case of Apple Computers vs. Apple Records.
Apple Computers won the first case in 1991 because Apple Records thought the "Apple" name and logo infringed on their profits with The Beatles music (which by the way was owned by Michael Jackson and soon be owned by Sony). Now that Apple Computers have the iPod, Apple Records sued Apple Computers again for infringement in the music biz.

Here's a couple links about the Apple trademark case:
http://www.legalzoom.com/...11325.html
http://www.nytimes.com/20...yt&emc=rss
http://news.findlaw.com/n...tmagr.html

Hopefully, something positive will happen with NPGMC. Perhaps a new name and a new site will come...

i wouldn't touch anything unless asked to do so, you never know for sure if you are helping or hurting. i wouldn't want to cause waves and make something civil go bad.

personally i'm happy with little ol' 3121.com myself.
take care,
Jill

So the problem is with NPGMC selling books.

I don't know whether it'd honestly be better to fight this or not. If it were me I'd not want to share the name with this company or any of the others using NPG, and wouldn't bother with going through the legal proceedings. 'New Power Generation' was already sounding dated in the early 90s, so why not use this as an opportunity for a new site, a new name and slogan, and some new funky music? He's still Prince, he still has his silly little symbol, and he likes a bit of reinvention and hype. He could weave a whole new story and pseudo-movement/collective. It sounds like something right up his alley to me.

all he had to say was that due to pending letigation all future prince corresponandance would be handled via 3121...


but nooooo....he had to close things down without any warning or explenation.

Man, I go off line for a few weeks and come back to this.....

but the thing is that whatever music would have,or has been published under the banner of "NPG" could b caput.


Okay, now that part bothers me. You mean if they won, anything associated with NPG, including the music is----GONE?

what are you afraid is going to happen to the music? why would it be gone?
