Rockstar wants to reclaim the Internet

Rockstar, Prince's name (or is his name 3121*?), has said he wants to “reclaim the Internet” and sue YouTube, eBay and The Pirate Bay for obvious reasons; they encourage copyright infringment.

He has hired firm Web Sherrif to monitor for any illegal content. But I wouldn’t trust that company, look at their hideous website, and I wonder if they have copyright permission for these images? I have a funny feeling that they do not.

There’s nothing he can do, becuase like the President of Web Sherrif, John Giacobbi, says, “In the past couple of weeks, we have removed about 2,000 infringing clips from YouTube. We get them down and the next day, there are 100 or 200 more.”

And The Pirate Bay sure as hell aren’t going to listen, look at all their ignored legal threats! One of the co-founders of the Bay, Peter Sunde, says that their spam filter will help take care of the threats. Web Sheriff has previously contacted The Pirate Bay over illegal content for their client, the White Stripes (which is on their legal section page).

*Prince's name‘s website address is http://www.3121.com but I wouldn’t sign up for his website, as it states: “Sign up 2day [sic] and get connected with 3,121 Email Newsletters…”
