look I love Prince I wouldn't be here otherwise but if this is what he does when he's in "studio rehab" then he needs to wall himself up in paisley for the next decade.

Probably to do with selling merchandise?

It stinks, but you had to see it coming once $ was involved, no matter how small. Scrooge McNelson don't like nobody else taking a swim in HIS moneypit!

Well done P. What a fabulous own goal! So sorry Troy that this has happened. U've brought a lot of joy and smiles and LPP has often put a spring in my step on crappy days. Shame he couldn't have worked with u or reached out himself rather than resort to this! Good luck in the future and please keep us updated with ur future ventures. Thank U Troy. It's been fun while it lasted!

Agree with every sentiment here.

Lil Prince was so cute. The real Prince needs a new circle of friends......someone to xplain to him how not to be a dick!!!!!!! He ain't going broke and I'm sure Troy would have worked with him if he would have reached out. I will nvr understand somone who seems to go out of their way to piss off their fans.

Yet again.

He's lost his sense of humour. It's petty but so is he.

Maybe Troy could make Le Petit Camille?

How can you quote a post that was made after your post without editing yours? That's some sick shit. Maybe time really is a trick after all...

While Prince....or his lawyers may ask Troy to stop....it doesnt mean they can enforce this request or have a legal leg to stand on.

I'd might wish for Troy to fit this but that stress is a poor return on the ability to give the Joy that Le Petit Prince has giving us, so I hope he doesn't.

To be honest, it wasn't just joy because he also gave a little kick that my Prince Fan-hood needed.

Michael Moore, Alec Baldwin, Sean Penn, Tim Robbins, Helen Hunt, George Clooney, Liv Tyler, Martin Sheen, Susan Sarandon, Janeane Garofalo, Matt Damon, Samuel L. Jackson, Danny Glover,Ethan Hawke, Kim Jong-il, Tony Blair, Queen Elizabeth II, Peter Jennings, and Hans Blix are all famous people parodied in "Team America: World Police" with far crueler intentions but I don't recall any of the above names seting the lawyers on Parker or Stone!!

So Prince is a bigger tyrant the Kim Jong-il

it is a very difficult area this no matter how small the amount of $ that was made. Copywrite is copywrite at the end of the day - if it were Armani issuing legals would we be complaining? It is still sad for the artist as it seemed like a tonne of effort had gone in.

It's creative and celebratory of the source material - almost anyone else would be flattered and linking to it from their official site/social media, and maybe striking up a deal with them. But this is Prince.

I'd understand him not wanting to sell that calendar anymore... but is he really saying Troy can't even post artwork anymore? Uncool.

( NOT HATING) I mean what is Prince's deal? He doesn't want any videos on youtube, won't release masters, doesn't like fansites, doesn't want his music covered, doesn't want good clean fun. I don't get what he is trying to do. It seems he wants to leave a negative legacy. The last time he did anything fun was the muppets.

When my band was tour with Fishbone. There was a rumor he might show up in Minnesota. Of course I was excited but the club owner was like neutral "Let's hope not." Seriously the ENTIRE club had a horror story about Prince. I was stunned I thought he was loved in his hometown.

I think it was the calendar that pushed it over the edge. You know Prince don't believe in time.
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Majority of (I'd say all) stars would of been flattered of fans' detailed artistic work of them, in fact anyone would of at least appreciated and respected the time and money that was spent even if they didn't like them they would of just left him alone.
I don't understand Prince sometimes.

I'm no high flying hollywood type lawyer but the way I see it, LPP is not using images of P, it is a character based on Prince. Can Prince ask people with similiar facial features to his to cease and desist? I'm not sure how it is in the rest of the world but in Australia, you could just add quote bubbles saying thigs like "Cease & Desist... Cease & Desist... ow-ah!" then it would count as satirical and be covered the same way political cartoons ad the like are.

P really shits me sometimes.

may display symptoms of sarcasm
