Someone will no doubt argue that the 3121 update with the L4OA logo is the answer.

I want to see Prince's response! Meaning...I want him to do it on video response.

Anything short of video could just be more of Web Sheriff's back peddling! hmph!

What CAN he say, really? If this were just some record label thing and he didn't have anything to do with it, he could call off the dogs and issue an apology.

But assuming, I think reasonably enough, that he IS behind this. . .what could he possibly say? shrug
oh noes, prince is gonna soo me!!1!

Well, seeing that I read somewhere online that he, himself, was going to issue a response later Wednesday, I expect an answer.

Just another of his lies to me.

Prince moves to sue his fan sites
Fan sites dedicated to Prince say they have been served legal notice to remove all images of the singer, his lyrics and "anything linked to Prince's likeness", and have vowed to fight what they said was censorship.

The move was a shock to his followers and came two months after Prince threatened to sue YouTube and other major internet sites for unauthorised use of his music.


But by targeting fan sites directly, Prince risks a backlash and the sites have vowed to unite under the banner "Prince Fans United" and take the matter to court if necessary.

"We strongly believe that such actions are in violation of ... freedom of speech and should not be allowed," said a statement from the three sites - www.housequake.com, www.princefams.com and www.prince.org.

A company helping Prince control his image and music on the internet said the fan sites had spun the story so that it was "incorrect and misleading".

"At no time is Prince suing his fans and this is not about freedom of speech," said John Giacobbi, managing director of internet policing specialist Web Sheriff.

"The current issue is one between Prince's record label and three unofficial websites and relates to the use of Prince trademarks and photographs, many of which are Prince's copyright," he told Reuters.

Giacobbi said Prince was expected to issue a full response to the fan sites' statement.

Prince fans were surprised at the artist's threat to sue them, pointing out that the 49-year-old was seen as a pioneer of online music distribution. He won an internet award last year for "reshaping the relationship between artist and fan".

"The irony is that someone who has won that award is now challenging the very ethos of the internet," said a spokesman for Prince Fans United.

He added: "The intention of this is to drum up public support, not to damage him. The fan groups want peace, they don't want war."

The sites, now featuring an image of a hand print with "pfu" written on it, said the singer had demanded the removal of fans' photographs of Prince-inspired tattoos and vehicles displaying Prince-inspired licence plates.

They urged Prince to reconsider his decision, but vowed to defend their position in court if need be.

"The law clearly provides for displaying of images of a celebrity's likeness for newsworthy events or matters which are considered to be public interest," they said.

Prince, behind hit albums Purple Rain and Sign O' The Times, is known as a maverick in the music business.

He performed with the word SLAVE scrawled across his cheek in protest against his then record label and changed his name to an unpronounceable symbol.

Prince also gave his Planet Earth album away free with a British Sunday newspaper earlier this year, infuriating music retailers but winning plaudits from fans for innovation.


See bolded part.
I had better see some logical shit and not that same old eye symbol garbage that he passes as clever cryptology. rolleyes

hmmm Maybe his "non-response" (silence) was his response? Sometimes what isn't said says more than what is. His lack of response could be interpreted as:

    a. he's hella pissed
    b. he does not/is not willing to talk
    c. he feels he does not own the fans/fansites any sort of comment
    d. Websheriff doesn't know what the hell he's talking about



shrug

I know, that's what I've been wondering too. It's just like him to promise something and to then not come through. He is such an ass!

Hmmm... methinks it's D... In my everso humble opinion based on the stuff that I have read about this websheriff bloke he seems like he doesn't really know what he's talking about - some of the letters that have been sent to other people were complete nonsense with little legal weight. I think that he realises that he has SERIOUSLY fucked up and said one of the first placatory things that came into his head, 'Prince will make a comment later tonight' I wonder if he got permission to say that?!. I'm willing to guess that there have been some 'interesting' telephone conversations between Prince's camp and the Web Cowboy - sorry, web sheriff - office.

Anyone remember the last time he sent cease and desist letters to Uptown, PPML/Prince.org and the Prince Family Newsletter....

Prince's answer then was for all of the independent sites to shut down, and come together to form 1 great website called.....

You guessed it.

And then "The Collective" was born.

Wonder why the L4OA was his response now?
