Does Prince WANT to be bootlegged?

So the other day I discovered. I don't have the actual extended "I wish U Heaven" anymore. I decided I would buy it on Itunes. Of course it isn't there.

Then a friend and I were discussing the extended AUTOMATIC video- You can't find it online.

I can go on and on

Most of his home videos are NOT available anywhere. Most of his B sides and extended versions are not available to be purchased. Few of his concerts are made available.

So my question is does Prince WANT to be bootlegged deep down to the keep the mystery going?

It was aired on "Rage" in Australia back when Prince toured here in 2003. They may've aired it before then as well, but I'm not too sure.

I think in Prince's mind if it's not available that doesn't mean you automaticly are intitled to have a copy.

I guess we just think if he's not selling we will buy somewhere else but I'm not sure Prince is thinking that way. I wouldn't like to second guess what hes' thinking but I think it's fair to say that he doesn't see bootlegs as a legitimate option

PS: I Wish U Heaven Remix is available on Amazon used and new for £8.99 on CD

I saw it in the eighties on music box or sky channel.
