Prince gets it right again — unfortunately

“Fifty artists who recorded Prince covers in honor of His Purpleness’ 50th birthday June 7 have been slapped with a lawsuit by the short-tempered star”, writes Wired.

I am afraid that Prince once again is right, when it comes to the law (even in Norway, which is part of international commerce agreements). These guys didn’t pay royalties, and it’s kind of Prince to not ask for millions of dollars in damages, but simply ask for the records destroyed.

Does this suck? Yes. Couldn’t Prince just be nicer? Yes. But the law is the law, and Prince has it on his side every time he initiates all these shitty actions.
