Prince, the champion of pushing the boundaries of the internet by finding ever inventive methods to reach out to his fans, has decided to sue some of his most hardcore fansites for breaching his copyright. Several sites run by his dedicated hardcore fan base have been hit with cease and desist orders almost exactly a decade since his last head on with his fans back in 1998. The fansites affected have launched a website www.princefansunited.com to fight Prince’s attempts to ‘bully’ them off the internet. In a surprising move, Prince has replied to their website with his own www.princefamsunited.com where he posted a song F.U.N.K. written in response to the fan run websites.
