R&B/Pop star Prince has ordered several fan websites to remove any image that bears his likeness. Internet sites HouseQuake.com, PrinceFams.com and Prince.org have been asked by the pop superstar’s lawyers to comply with their demands immediately. The outraged websites, who stand accused of copyright infringement, have now joined forces to form Prince Fans United in protest. A statement on website PrinceFansUnited.com reads: “It is our opinion 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 fan sites are not allowed to present any artwork with Prince’s likeness, to the extreme that he has demanded the removal of fans’ own photographs of their Prince inspired tattoos and their vehicles displaying Prince inspired license plates.”
