Despite once being considered an online innovator, Prince has more recently made a name for himself for being unafraid to confront the infringement of his work. Now, the artist has filed a hefty $22 million lawsuit against 22 Facebook and Blogger users for working in concert to steal his content. The case, filed as Prince v. Chodera in the Northern District of California, reads, The Defendants in this case engage in massive infringement and bootlegging of Princes material. Only two defendants are named in the suit, however — the rest are listed as John Does, though eight do have the distinction of being regarded by their online handles. Nevertheless, Prince, based on information and belief, alleges that each of the individuals worked together on Facebook and Blogger to conduct infringing activity, and lists extensively the mirror sites and blogs each used to distribute copies of his work. This is only the latest copyright battle Prince has fought.
