PRINCE Threaten Legal Action Against His Largest Fan Sites

Source: Guardian

This isn't metal but it does involve the battle between artists and the music industry... oh wait.. between an artist and his FANS?!? What the fuck?!?

[Prince's] lawyers have forced his three biggest internet fansites to remove all photographs, images, lyrics, album covers and anything linked to the artist's likeness. A legal letter asks the fansites to provide "substantive details of the means by which you propose to compensate our clients [Paisley Park Entertainment Group, NPG Records and AEG] for damages".

I like his general approach to the powers in the industry but this one leaves me scratching my head. You don't go after your fans like he is.
