Prince to sue YouTube, eBay over music use – Yahoo! News

see, now this is just bullshit. I myself have seen YouTube videos yanked due to copyright (Beyonce’s fall, clips from the Grammys, etc). I think YouTube does a great job, when contacted, at removing material. As a Prince fan, I noticed during the winter a lot of his material was removed from YouTube, so it’s not like these guys turned their backs on him. Grow a set and remember that this is an avenue in which to sell yourself. Use it, don’t sue it.

Prince’s biggest diva demand: Build me a home by the Dome | the Daily Mail

Gotta admit, this takes guts.  Want me to play 21 shows in one place?? Well then, build me a house. Until then, I’ll stay in a $3000 a night hotel room.

Sweet.

Prince plays a private show for $15,000 a ticket.  Seriously. That is one hell of a fundraiser.  Wonder what the school needs?!?!

Prince’s free album causes storm with retailers – USATODAY.com

Okay, so this is very interesting to me. First he gave away a CD for every ticket issued to his show. Now he is giving it away with every newspaper sold. First off….how much is he getting from the tabloid? I would assume he is getting the equivalent to what his cut is from the record label. So, he is happy. Tabloid sells more copies than usual, so they are happy. Honestly, though, below the surface of the obvious reason the label is unhappy, do you not think that more records will be sold via word of mouth? It’s only a one day “giveaway” and if you have belief that the product is good enough to sell, then don’t you think you should rely on that belief? Honestly, how many copies are going to be given away for free? Few hundred thousand, max? Big deal.
