Wondering why Prince quickly dropped his $22 milllion lawsuit against bootlegging fans? Prince initially sued 22 people for uploading and distributing bootlegged concerts, but dropped the suit less than two weeks after filing it.
A BBC reporter asked Prince about the lawsuit. Here’s what he had to say about the abrupt change-of-heart:
“Nobody sues their fans. …I have some bootlegs of Lianne [La Havas] but I wouldn’t sell them. But fans sharing music with each other, that’s cool.”
Apparently Prince really does like his fans: The Artist also announced that he’s hoping to charge “about $10” for some upcoming UK shows.
