Prince has filed a lawsuit against a group of online fans who have posted unauthorized Prince concert videos from the ’80s and beyond on Facebook and other boards.
As Consequence of Sound and The Guardian report, Princeâ€™s court claim targets â€œ22 internet usersâ€ for $1 million each. The people heâ€™s suing consist of people who run the Facebook pages and other websites, which have been accused of â€œmassive infringement and bootlegging of Princeâ€™s materialâ€ that amount to â€œup to thousands of separate acts of infringement and bootlegging.â€
The plaintiff formerly known as Prince also alleges that the defendants â€” 2 of whom are named, with the rest remaining anonymous â€“ â€constitute an interconnected network of bootleg distribution which is able to broadly disseminate unauthorised copies of Princeâ€™s musical compositions and live performancesâ€
Wonder if a lawsuit like this will actually hold up in court?
