An 11-year legal action over a YouTube video of a baby dancing to Prince's hit Let's Go Crazy has been settled.
Stephanie Lenz posted the clip of her son Holden, now aged 12, in February 2007. And it has since been viewed more than 1.9 million times.

Last week the US Supreme Court refused to hear an appeal from Universal, which owns the rights to Prince's music, over a previous ruling by the Ninth Circuit, this led to both parties coming to their own agreement to settle the case.

Mrs Lenz, represented in court by US digital rights group the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said in a statement that Universal's processes for handling such cases were now "much better".


If this is the way the recording industry act towards toddlers what chance does the actual artist have in getting any revenues, such greed knows no human bounds.

it probably didnt help that prince himself was just as crazy about music royalties and piracy as lars ulrich (guy who killed napster)....
