    How does Universal claim injury? Can it claim that any and all use is prohibited without the sole consent of the owner? Or that a licensing fee would need to be paid? I would suspect that the court will require Universal to tell it how the use of Prince’s music in anyway caused them a loss of income, now or in the future. No one profited from the Youtube production. This is a test case. Copyright law, as Cory knows, is evolving.

    Good for the EFF! Universal needs to be made an example of so companies will think twice of their random throwing tactics of extorting money from people.

    Unfortunately, dipshit-assholism is quite widespread. “Let’s Go Crazy” indeed.

    Be careful. Prince might sue her next!
