it's probably time for a new single right about now lol

lol Exactly my thoughts.

Though I think a singlewon't do it this time ... an album might distract the attention.

But then again, as many have stated already, this whole thing means just bad vibes around the whole project.

Pissing off the core of your fan base ain't exactly a way to promote an album.

funk owned and collectively grown lol

i think you're right, the only thing that could control some of the damage

would be a new prince album. not a 3EG featuring Prince album and not

superconductor reloaded.

i guess we won't see remasters of his 80s albums until prince manages to

actually bully and entire audience at one of his shows into leaving lol

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

As the recent magazine photoshoot shows, he can Photoshop the hell out of his visual image to appear squeaky clean & wrinkle free, but he'll never be able to fill the cracks HE has created through the treatment of his loyallest of fans.

Strange Relationship might have been written about Susannah, but it could easily apply to his treatment of fans these days sad
blah blah blah

As I posted above, I think this was handled very poorly. After thinking about it a bit more, I guess one good thing is that this didn't turn into a lawsuit against Serpan. Even if everything was dismissed or thrown out of court, it could've cost a lot of money for him.

And that is EXACTLY the point of those C&D/lawsuit threats: they are based on ZILCH, but defending yourself against them would eat up all your time and money and thus you do what Prince set out to achive: you stop doing whatever you were doing. You stop publishing your fanmag, you take down your website, you stop blogging, you stop tweeting,... And all along other fans who were thinking about doing something similar to you get scared away.

I have given out multiple warnings on this here thread, etc. It is time to put the lock on this. This thread did not have to turn personal with negative vibes.

If you want to discuss lawsuits, C & Ds, then start a new thread.
