Official Prince YouTube Channel

It's now live [No posting of youtube links. The org does not have the purple seal of approval to post such links snip - luv4u]

The first upload is the full episode of the Arsenio show from last night.

Guys. This is Prince's OFFICIAL youtube channel. I know we have the rule about YouTube etc. But for Christ's sake, it's his official verified channel.

And no, don't lock this. We need to have a discussion about this.

When we hear from the Purple Camp and get the seal of approval...

No reason to lock, discussion of this is open

Looking forward to watching the whole show...

Nope. This is the new official Prince channel. If I can't post a link to it, well - it's the logical address.

Proof:

If Prince didn't want us sharing his official YouTube videos, he would not have made an official YouTube account and bothered to get it verified.

Not sharing stuff uploaded by other people? That makes perfect sense.

Not sharing stuff uploaded to his official channel? That makes zero sense. That is why it's there.

I mean, if you're really concerned then you need to get Ben to talk to Prince about it.

It would be up to the Prince camp to approach us. Until then.......... it's business as usual.

That doesn't make any sense. The logical assumption is that official uploads are there to be shared. If it weren't - why would he bother? He's gonna assume that the fansites will share it. And I guarantee the other fansites will be doing so. We post links to the official 3rd Eye Girl twitter page on here all the time. We don't need him to tell us it's OK for that, so why YouTube? As Ben and everyone else knows, his previous issue with YouTube sharing was because random stuff was getting uploaded by random people in various poor quality, with unreleased and unauthorised stuff being shared. Having an official YouTube channel is Prince taking control of that situation. He wants us to share from there, but nowhere else. It is absolute madness to not be allowed to post OFFICIAL content. And Prince isn't gonna randomly email Ben to say it's cool, unless he logs on and reads this (if so, hey Prince, release Cosmic Day plz, thanks man) - so we're just gonna be stuck in limbo.

I get that the org has to be very very careful... but requiring the Prince camp to specifically "reach out" to the org to give "permission" to post a link to his official YouTube channel ... I mean, that's just stupidity at its greatest. Let's do some critical thinking here, people.

No confusion, no tears. No enemies, no fear. No sorrow, no pain. No ball, no chain.

Sex is not love. Love is not sex. Putting words in other people's mouths will only get you elected.

Until then....... we cannot post youtube vid links, period. If we could we would but we can't. It's frustrating I know. But until the org gets contacted by the purple camp with a seal of approval, the rules still stand.

If he wanted the advertising on here we would of been contacted. Drfunkenberry has the purple seal of approval to post vids and pics and other 'approved' materials, he is his mouth piece. The org is not nor was chosen to be a mouth piece for Prince.

The usual retro-reversed logic.

They put it out.

They allow everyone to see it. (not even DRM, continental diversions etc)

They cannot do anything about 'linking'.

And yet they are scared.

See http://apple.slashdot.org...athed-ipad

A very similar case.

Apple is too scared/lazy/stupid to do the logical thing.

Same here.

The backgrounds?

A dark 'corporate culture' that warped everything, including legislation, ideas about ethics, etc.

The first upload is the full Arsenio show, minus the adverts, in HD. That's very generous of Prince to do that for his international fans, only a few hours after it aired.

You say that is the outcome.

If so then fair use is out the window. (we're fans, there's no ads, here, etc)

If so the USA is once again most certainly lost beyond saving.

Your mind set is 'off'.

Really, type in 3 keywords and it's the top result...

Who's the artist?

Who's show is it?

What website is it on?

lol lol lol

It was really cool of Prince to upload this. As someone who doesn't have cable, satellite or an antenna, I rely on DVDs and the internet as my sources for things to watch. As of this morning I couldn't find this show legally or illegally until he posted it. So, THANKS PRINCE!!

cool music headbang fro
