Prince Sends Lawyers After Youtube?

I knew it wouldn't be long before the Tube Raiding honeymoon ended, and the cease and desist orders started pouring in. Sure enough, looks like Prince is the first to strike, as all files featuring the man seem to have disappeared over the last day or so.

I'm not surprised he'd be the one, as Prince never been shy about sending in the lawyers.. I even received my very own purple c-and-d order once, straight from Londell McMillan.. back in the late 90's when Prince first discovered the internet, freaked out and tried to shut down all his fan sites.

Unlike that bout of lunacy, I can't really be mad at Prince for this, it's his right to make the move.. even though if I were him I'd just sit back welcome the free promotion, especially on all these files that aren't commercially available anyway so it's a win-win. But like I said he's within his rights, and I'm sure many others will follow suit as youtube continues to blow. In the meantime, here's one classic bit of Prince footage the man can't take away, yet.
