Is Prince Being Fair to His Fans?

Prince has done his share of ludicrous things in his lifetime, and admittedly, the news that he's gearing up to sue his fan sites doesn't even compete with when he changed his name to a symbol or painted his house purple. But it's still pretty crazy: Prince and his lawyers are demanding that his major fan sites remove all photographs, images, lyrics, and album covers, saying the sites are violating copyright law.

On the one hand, I can understand a famous person wanting to protect how his image is used. On the other hand, going after the fans who support him most might not be the best PR strategy. What do you think?

Such a talented performer, but, seems like he's going the way of Michael Jackson, waaay over the top. Does that much talent come with so high aprice tag?

I am on the fence. I remember him being on Arsenio Hall back in the day when he had slave written on his face. He was really serious about them making money of not only the music but his likeness. These are his fans though so ...

I love Prince, so I'm not going to say anything bad about him. Even if he is acting like a diva.

He needs to get over himself. Who does he think buys his CDs?

I own a fan site and a lot of work goes into it, for NO profit whatsoever! The fact that he is suing his fans for promoting him is infuriating to me. He doesn't deserve to have any fans.

His Last tour he announced that he would no longer be performing ANY of his older stuff, so anyone going to his tours from now on should know that its all his new material, and no little red corvettes. I still love him thought. When George Harrison died, and they did a tribute concert, He came out on stage and did "while my guitar gently weeps" and blew everyone away....its on you tube

He changed his name so he could get out of his contact and own his own music, which is not so crazy. And hey, purple house for purple rain! But suing your fan sites isn't cool. These are the people who buy those overpriced tickets and merchandise!

He shut down his offical fan club, which I was a member of. I can't imagine why he wants to go after his fans. We're just out there to support him. He is a musician of great talent, but he has a major ego.

I have always thought he was pretty talented, but this seems severe. I guess I would have to see the sites to make a fair judgement, but so far I am leaning with the fans. Think of all the fan sites that are out there...can you imagine if all the musicians and actors that had them turned around and sued?
