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

nod It's for sure that Prince's spies are reading this thread, so, Prince knows about this cover now.

Shall we edit him outta our posts?

I dont really blame him for sueing bootleggers, but for a million dollars?

Crazy guy. Not like he needs the money either, he's loaded!

Reading this thread just reminded me of that Weird Al parody 'I'll sue ya'. I think its secretly about P haha

He is not "suing fans". He's suing people who have distributed his art ilegally.

[Edited 1/22/14 7:57am]

That equals fans. No non-fan could be arsed to upload or share bootlegs for free. Only a fan would go to that kind of trouble to share with other fans.

Its all part of a ritual he goes thru before a new cd.

1- New girlfriend

2- Tease fans unmercifully

3- Sue somebody

4- Change hairstyle

5- Come up with a gimmick to promote new cd

All culminating in a new cd which he

will abandon within a few weeks when

sales are flat.

Its annoying but eventually we get some new music.

Sure, they're fans. But they're not sued for being fans, they're sued for making something ilegal. They've infringed copyright. Maybe Prince's suit is excessive, but he's right in suing.

Track 9 on this

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?

To the GP, music, mainly music from the '80s. To his fans, it'll be music and being a diva. lol

U got that right

Hey if you want to delete all mention of the specific issue go for it, it's in your hands now, my posts are properly edited. Personally i'm sure he was happy enough to reap whatever little rewards he got from this issue. NOW... BACK TO THE ACTUAL LAWSUIT lol

Today:

  1. The sun rose
  2. A bird flew
  3. A car drove by
  4. A baby cried
  5. Prince acted like a miserable cunt

Tomorrow won't be any different. THE END.

Remember the guy who made those dolls? Yes they were damn ugly, but dude was a fan too and instead of Prince making money with that guy he fucked that guy's world up with letigation. Bootleggers are fans. People dont fuck with Prince's music unless they like his music. People either love him or hate him-there is no in between.
