Oh, Prince. He’s famously unhappy about fans uploading videos of his gigs to YouTube, and now it appears Twitter’s Vine app is just as annoying. Prince’s NPG Records has filed a DMCA takedown notice with Vine to remove eight video clips. “These are unauthorized recordings and are unauthorized synchronizations
As such, I have a good faith belief that use of the copyrighted work described above is not authorized by the copyright owner,” explains the copyright infringement notice, which has been published on the Chilling Effects website. All eight clips have since been removed from Vine, which is a shame, because we’d be fascinated to know if they were live clips (e.g. shot at his recent SXSW gig) or regular user-generated videos with Prince’s music playing in the background. If the former, the thought of six-second clips shot at concerts (a big use for Vine) as copyright-infringing is quite a thought.
