PRESS RELEASE - FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRINCE FANS FIGHT BACK AGAINST ATTACKS

In an extraordinary, but not unfamiliar move, the rock legend Prince is using an army of lawyers to launch attacks on his own fans. Several of the largest web communities dedicated to the artist have received notices to cease and desist all use of photographs, images, lyrics, album covers and anything linked to Prince's likeness. It is our belief that these threats are not made in an attempt to enforce valid copyright as Prince alleges in his threats, rather we believe they are attempts to stifle all critical commentary about Prince. We strongly believe that such actions are in violation of the freedom of speech and should not be allowed. Prince claims that fansites are not allowed to present any artwork with Prince's likeness, to the extreme that he has demanded removal of fan's own photographs of their Prince inspired tattoos and their vehicles displaying Prince inspired license plates. Prince's representatives have requested that the fansites provide them with "substantive details of the means by which you [the fansites] propose to compensate our clients [Paisley Park Enterprises, NPG Records and Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG)] for damages..."

The owners of the three largest fansites supporting Prince: www.housequake.com, www.princefams.com and www.prince.org supporting Prince have come together to fight back to what amounts to an injustice to the fansites and the very fans who have supported Prince's career, many since the very beginning nearly thirty years ago.

It is their hope that Prince will reconsider his position and allow these fansites to continue their existence without constant threats from Prince and his attorneys. Should this not be possible, the fansites are fully prepared to defend their position in the proper court of law, as well as fully prosecute any claims to which they are justly entitled.

The owners of housequake.com, princefams.com and prince.org acknowledge that, while Prince is entitled to control of his copyrights, it should be within the law. 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. All three websites feel that the photographs and/or likeness displayed on their websites clearly fall within the public interest category. Additionally, the use of photographs is legal based on the fair use doctrine, i.e. the displaying of album cover art, or the collage headers created by website members using a variety of different photographs.

For princefams.com: Endre Adolfsen and Jonathan Nice

prince@montreux: july 16th, 2007

(in english, because there are more english than german readers)

2002 – 2007: a long time to wait for his purple majesty. he was in switzerland for the ona-tour in 2002 and since then we had to wait.

one of my dreams was that he will play at montreux since i know him and its unbelievable, in 2007 he just came to claude nobs.

some negative feelings were about the so-called fans: i still can't believe how uncivilized some of them were in the queue for the entrance. shame on you, all you freaks!! it should be clear that to push is only bad for your and the others feeling, nothing more.

also negative that he didn't allowed even claude nobs to show the stage on the screen in the auditorium stravinsky. as other places reported, the stage is not really raised a lot, so after the first ranks it was very difficult to see him on stage.

also not perfect: from montreux i expect a perfect, clear sound. sometimes it was perfect, but not always. the bass was a bit too strong and not clear. the horns were great!


hey, all the rest was simply w o n d e r f u l !!


search also 3121.com, prince-web.de, housequake.com or other well-known places for more infos.



approximative tracklisting:


when the saints go marching in:

ha! not down by the riverside as beginning, so the first surprise is here :-)

great horns, great horns. did i said that i like the horns?


jazz-improvisation:

same as also in vegas.. was it a night in tunisia? not sure, but it was long, and i loved it. was really happy that so much jazz is played in the beginning.


down by the riverside:

see first track!


satisfied (very long version):

yo. we know that. the jazz was going away ;-)


girls & boys:

that was a suprise for me. a very positive surprise.


purple rain:

a really nice version of this song. indeed never boring!


what a wonderful world:

oh, some more jazz, cool


love is a losing game and sweet thing:

hmmm, i didn't feel the spirit with these songs. maybe it was only me. but still more than ok.


sweet thing, got a broken heart again:

nice.


musicology:

wow. still amazing. live a absolut kicking song.


play that funky music:

too long, really too long, but funky as hell most of the time.

i feel for you:

yeahhhhhh, now thats something i also feeled!


controversy:

magnifique!


crazy:

always a beautiful song.


nothing compares 2 u:

nice to hear it live.


7:

no comment, only: wow!


come together:

i still don't know if i like him when he is playing the beatles.


take me with you:

old song, but still fantastic.


guitar:

live a killer-track!


little red corvette/sometimes it snows in april:

hurrahhhh! missing words for that. simply prince.


i expected maybe a bit more jazz? no, i hoped :-)

i tried not to expect anything.

finally a great evening with some surprises. and montreux is still a beautiful place. you definitively don't need to have a ticket for a show to have fun and a lot of music during the jazz festival.


you see, i am not really a writer, lol. but i had to promise that i make a review.



war auch cool, mal online-bekanntschaften zu sehen, liebe grüsse an die freunde vom orange-board! war nur ein schnelles hallo-sagen, dann ein aus-den-augen-verlieren, aber hat mich sehr gefröit!

neue generation von video brillen


also das sieht doch einfach nur geil aus. ein kleines kästchen, direkt an eine normale brille gehängt, sowas ist interessant.


wie schreibt übergizmo:
Gleichzeitig Filme oder Nachrichten schauen UND ziellos rumlaufen, das tönt nach einem perfekten Sightseeing-Gerät!

dem ist nix hinzuzufügen
