No More Prince - YouTube Copyright School

No more Prince video. I believe the fact that the number of views was so fantastic that hours after Youtube sent me a revenue sharing email for it, they followed with a removal notification via NPG Records (Prince New Power Generation). I am glad many folks were able to catch a glimpse the amazing performance while it was online.

A few years ago, NPG Records went after anyone who posted a video on youtube of him performing Radiohead's Creep at Coachella. Radiohead was upset that Prince had the videos removed since the true holder of the song copyright is Radiohead... in the end, Radiohead won and the videos were replaced ;)
