- Prince has released a statement dismissing reports that he was threatening to sue a trio of fan sites for breach of copyright. AEG, the star's promoters, have stated: "Prince is not suing his fans, is not looking to penalise fans and nor is he looking to or inhibiting freedom of speech in any way. In fact, he is simply looking to provide Prince fans with exclusive music and images entirely free of charge, and bypassing unofficial and unauthorised phoney fan sites that exploit both consumers and artists.

AEG added: "The action taken earlier this week was not to shut down fansites, or control comment in any way. The issue was simply to do with in regards to copyright and trademark of images and only images, and no lawsuits have been filed.The three sites in question have falsely positioned themselves as representatives of millions of Prince at his official site and even on the message boards of the unofficial sites in question."
