Prince vs. Radiohead: The battle over copyright

A couple of friends of mine went to Coachella last month and they mentioned that Prince had done a cover of Radiohead's hit song Creep. I knew that eventually that would hit the internets and we'd all get a chance to listen to it. Well, apparently the videos went up but were quickly pulled by Prince. Radiohead heard about the performance and were happy that the guy performed it but were upset that he had asked You Tube to pull the video since they owned the song. So the big question now is who's got the right to what when it comes down to copyright and ownership. Hmmmm....I think Prince is gonna lose this one (wadda jackass, IMO. He's the one making money off of others!). Check out the full story over here at CNN and let us know what you think.
