So, there is an artist who sculpted this little Prince Doll. He called it "Le Petit Prince" (see post in August). He did an amazing job and would photograph the little doll in poses of the record covers. I LOVED this and asked the guy if he was selling them and no, he wasnt. But I guess the demand got overwhelming and he started selling calendars of the PHOTOS of the DOLL.(one doll, not a whole bunch mass-marketed)
You know Prince, he's not having it. A Cease and Desist was ordered.
Now, I get 100 percent , that he has the legal right and I believe that artists should control their image, but this was clearly an artistic labor of love inspired by Prince. I just think he could have handled it differently instead of demanding the whole website come down...
Full story and pix here... (cause I cant post the pictures or Prince will get mad grrrr)
