Recently, 22 fans of pop icon Prince (a.k.a. the artist formerly known as “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince”) were served notice that they were being sued for $1 million each. The allegation? According to the complaint, each of the defendants had committed multiple instances of copyright infringement by posting links to unlicensed copies of Prince’s concerts. Fortunately for these alleged bootleggers, the Purple One voluntarily dismissed his $22 million lawsuit a few days later, just as soon as the offending posts had been removed.
