Prince Files $22 Million Lawsuit Against Facebook & Blogger Users
Prince has remained an advocate for many things throughout his career, including all legal and privacy rights to his music. Despite having a Twitter account and somewhat embracing social media, the “Artist Formerly Known As…” is still strict about his copyrights, making it impossible to watch a live performance online, including YouTube and Facebook.
Unfortunately, a few online bloggers are now on the wrong side of the law for bootlegging Prince performances for online streaming. This week, the singer filed a 21-page complaint/lawsuit in San Francisco in an effort to collect $22 million in damages from a total of 22 Facebook and Blogger users.
