Prince Takes on YouTube

Don't expect to find too much material of Prince on YouTube in the future. The famous songwriter and eccentric music savant is waging war with the popular online video company over copyright issues and unauthorized use of his music.

I'm not sure why the former assless chap wearing icon is so testy over this matter. At the age of 49, you'd think he would be happy that anyone still takes interest in his music. Sure it's timeless, and great, and a hundred other laudatory terms, but come on. It's 2007 and with Bush in office, not everyone can afford to buy your records. Maybe we just want to watch old videos of you when you were amazing. If you want to read more about what he's upset about, check out this article for more info. --Jonathan Cunningham
