Prince has been a wanker about things like this for a long time, though. While this latest development is news (and thank you for sharing) the way major corporations are trying to beat the music scene to death certainly isn't.
This makes me want to take that old meat-eater line "For every music clip you pull I'll pirate two more". Quite seriously, watching one or video clips on line might (and in fact, actually has) prompted me to buy music. With moves like this it will become much easier to just head over to Pirate Bay and grab everything you want, permanently. Pirate the music and go to the concerts. No-one loses but Warner.
