Prince Calls Out Copyright Complaint Against Twitter's Vine

Prince's record label NPG has issued a copyright complaint against Twitter's Vine video app after the company aired eight videos which NPG claimed broke copyright law.

A complaint issued by NPG on March 22 cites the Digital Millennium Copyright Act and demands Vine take down eight clips of the Purple One which they allege contain "unauthorized recordings" and "unauthorized synchronizations."

The internet company has since removed the clips in accordance with its DMCA policy. Prince has previously derided the internet, explaining in a 2010 interview:

"The internet's completely over. I don't see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won't pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can't get it. The internet's like MTV. At one time MTV was hip and suddenly it became outdated. Anyway, all these computers and digital gadgets are no good. "
