It appears they are handling all copyright infringement issues and are very busy. What kills me as for years people on this board ranted about Prince having cease and desist orders sent due to copyright infringement when he really was doing the minimal amount of effort.

Now that a court is overseeing the estate we are really going to see stop action.

I still think the removal of live video footage on YouTube is stupid. Nobody is making money off this stuff. Most of the videos are crappy cell phone videos not professionally shot.

Clearly, the basis of the Estate's claim, that Prince only gave Tidal permission to stream HITnRUN Phase One, is absurd and can be disproved merely by viewing Prince's twitter account. He links to exclusive material he's provided Tidal on numerous occasions, including to older material (that he's obviously aware of) and provided Tidal with an exclusive track from his final Piano and a Microphone concert in Atlanta ('Black Sweat') just days before his death.

It should be driven by whether it’s something the Estate is losing money on. A 4 minute bad cell phone camera clip of a live show on YouTube isn’t losing the Estate money.

This Affidavit by Comerica is well worth the read.

http://www.mncourts.gov/m...-10-17.pdf



Apparently, if they are going down they are taking Lonnie with them. lol

  • Some points in the Affidavit:

-Because of issues related to Mr. McMillan, we have been forced to carefully

consider the information we can share with the Heirs based on the risk that the Nelsons might

provide that information to Mr. McMillan, as it could then be used in a manner that is contrary to

the interests of the Estate.

-We provided Mr. McMillan the Estate's form non-disclosure agreement, versions

of which have been executed by more than 75 individuals and entities to whom the Estate has

provided confidential information. Mr. McMillan responded by entirely rewriting the agreement,

to the point where it would do little to prevent disclosure of confidential and sensitive

information, including by removing protections on information disclosed orally, any restrictions

on his company Northstar Enterprises from disclosing information, and the ability of the Estate

to obtain a protective order in the event of a compelled disclosure.

-Mr. McMillan has refused to sign the Estate's NDA, despite

the fact that the NDA is substantially similar to the agreement Mr. McMillan executed with

Bremer Trust.

-We know that Mr. McMillan has been out in the marketplace

attempting to compete with the Estate.

What the equalizer said about WB being able to access the vault when ever they wanted, was NOT true. Just another lie.

15. The only people authorized to access the IMES vault in which the Decedent's
materials are stored are
and select IMES employees. Others may only
access the vault if approved in advance by one of those three Comerica personnel. Access is
tracked by IMES so we can monitor and audit it from anywhere.

Comerica also can see when they open the emails that Comerica sends. So they have seen where Sharon and LM open those.

We prepared drafts of an updated inventory and accounting for the Estate and
posted both documents to the secure and confidential HighQ document sharing system prior to
the September2 9 meeting. The log created by the HighQ system shows that counsel for the
Nelsons has accessed both documents. Similarly, we posted a copy of the estate tax return on
July 25, 2017, and both SharonN elson (onA ugust 2) and her attorneys (on July 26 and July 31)
have accessedt he return.
36. On August 21,2017, the Personal Representativem ailed each of the Heirs a copy
ofI RSF orm 8971,w hich providedd etailedb asis informationa boutt he assets of the Estate.
37. We provide the Heirs account statements on a monthly basis which show the
balances of, and activity in, the Estate's account and all oft he entity accounts at Comerica. We
have also implemented a process whereby on a monthly basis during Heirs meetings, we reserve
time to discuss the account statements with the Heirs.


And let's not forget LM's tweets, because they are keeping an eye on those also.

68. Attached as Exhibit Yare copies of tweets by the Nelsons and Mr. McMillan
accusingt he Personal Representative of being "evil," having "lied" and engagedi n "deceit," and
operatinga "Plantation."

Andrea,
I wish things were better with Sharon, Norrine and John (SNJ) and Comerica but your false allegations continue to evidence your self-serving narrative and mis-reading of the situation. Your communications have not added transparency or clarity but just the opposite and this has been communicated to you and Comerica. You have not agreed to have all the Heirs representatives attend meetings together. We do not wish to create different meetings with Heirs and their advisors, as that will likely cause further division. SNJ raised their concerns with you and Sharon even filed legal documents in opposition to your behavior early on so please do not seek to cast blame elsewhere.
You and Angela simply will not accept responsibility for your improper conduct. The record will show that SNJ, Charles Spicer and I have all tried to be professional, courteous and work with you and Comerica but you all are disrespectful and matters have not improved, they have become worst. You cannot blame everyone else for your issues. Understand, your issues and problems with SNJ corne directly from you, your colleagues and advisors at Comerica not me. I have been minimally involved in your communications with SNJd ue to your unwillingness to communicate with me much early on. Further, I did not advise anyone to stop taking meetings with Comerica but these meetings have reportedly been unproductive, usually not attended by allt he Heirs, and unhelpful to administering the best interests of the Prince Estate for numerous reasons.
For clarity, since you referenced the Minutes, I have been advised and my clients have advised yout hat the Minutes you prepare under Comerica's name are incomplete, misleading and not accurate. Again, this is coming from them not me but you can continue to blame me for stating what they may not wish toc onfront you. This is why you must cease dealing with business matters without my involvement, as the business advisors of SNJ.
Let's agree that I will have my legal counsel speak with your counsel if you do not speak directly with my clients without my permission since I have an agreement ast heir business manager and advisor. Is that satisfactory?
If not, we should seek some way to reach an amicable agreement to do what's int he best interest of the Prince Estate and that isn ot doing things the way they have been going because things are pretty bad right now ....

Court File No. lO-PR-16-46
Dear Mr. Cassioppi,
At our meeting today you confirmed that Comerica will not permit any legal counsel for the
heirs or Mr. McMillan to attend heir meetings. Additionally, Mr. McMillan has been excluded from
certain confidential communications and information based on the disagreement over the terms of
Comerica's proposed non-disclosure agreement, despite the fact that Mr. McMillan already
executed an assignable NDA with Bremer. Nonetheless, Comerica has urged Sharon, Norrine, and
John to attend the heirs meeting scheduled to occur tomorrow by conference call. Since Comerica's
communication, or lack thereof, with the heirs is a sharp point of contention between the heirs and
Comerica, Sharon and Norrine Nelson plan to join the call but they will also have a court reporter
join the call to create a transcript of the meeting. The court reporter will agree that the transcript
will not be released to anyone other than Comerica, the heirs, their advisors, and their respective
counsel. If Comerica or any of the other heirs desire a copy of the transcript, we will provide the
requesting party with the name of the service so that they may order a copy.

Oh please it’s entirely up to an artist (or whoever actually owns the work) to decided what they want to allow or go after. That’s why Prince eventually allowed his Coachella performance of Creep back on YouTube, because Radiohead said it’s our song and we’re OK with it being on YouTube. I’m guessing most artists think it’s counter productive or fan hostile to go after every crappy cell phone video of live performances, especially if it’s just one song or a portion of a song.

Earlier court docs showed that the deal Prince signed did not give WB access to the vault. This was a lie that LM put out to make someone out to be a boogie man trying to steal Prince's music.

( I hate the coded racial way he is framing this when he is really the problem)

The only people that are going to cause the publishing and master tapes to be sold off in a fire sale are the three children of John L Nelson if they do not stop wasting estate money by constantly complanining because they cannot use the estate as their personal ATM.

I cannot figure out how 3 elderly people could be so in need of money as they are the heirs of John and John's name was on some of Prince's songs so they must be getting some income and they each inherited 90k after job died. What in gods name do retired people do with that kind of money.

My big fear is that the 3 of them will pass and they will leave the managing of their estates to LM.

Meaning he will never go away and continue to plot a why to squeez as much money as possible out of the estate of Prince Rogers Nelson.

I mean the first thing he did when Troy Carter came along was try and get his daugther's music on Sportify. WTF is that about?

Comerica also can see when they open the emails that Comerica sends. So they have seen where Sharon and LM open those.

We prepared drafts of an updated inventory and accounting for the Estate and
posted both documents to the secure and confidential HighQ document sharing system prior to
the September2 9 meeting. The log created by the HighQ system shows that counsel for the
Nelsons has accessed both documents. Similarly, we posted a copy of the estate tax return on
July 25, 2017, and both SharonN elson (onA ugust 2) and her attorneys (on July 26 and July 31)
have accessedt he return.
36. On August 21,2017, the Personal Representativem ailed each of the Heirs a copy
ofI RSF orm 8971,w hich providedd etailedb asis informationa boutt he assets of the Estate.
37. We provide the Heirs account statements on a monthly basis which show the
balances of, and activity in, the Estate's account and all oft he entity accounts at Comerica. We
have also implemented a process whereby on a monthly basis during Heirs meetings, we reserve
time to discuss the account statements with the Heirs.


And let's not forget LM's tweets, because they are keeping an eye on those also.

68. Attached as Exhibit Yare copies of tweets by the Nelsons and Mr. McMillan
accusingt he Personal Representative of being "evil," having "lied" and engagedi n "deceit," and
operatinga "Plantation."

Andrea,
I wish things were better with Sharon, Norrine and John (SNJ) and Comerica but your false allegations continue to evidence your self-serving narrative and mis-reading of the situation. Your communications have not added transparency or clarity but just the opposite and this has been communicated to you and Comerica. You have not agreed to have all the Heirs representatives attend meetings together. We do not wish to create different meetings with Heirs and their advisors, as that will likely cause further division. SNJ raised their concerns with you and Sharon even filed legal documents in opposition to your behavior early on so please do not seek to cast blame elsewhere.
You and Angela simply will not accept responsibility for your improper conduct. The record will show that SNJ, Charles Spicer and I have all tried to be professional, courteous and work with you and Comerica but you all are disrespectful and matters have not improved, they have become worst. You cannot blame everyone else for your issues. Understand, your issues and problems with SNJ corne directly from you, your colleagues and advisors at Comerica not me. I have been minimally involved in your communications with SNJd ue to your unwillingness to communicate with me much early on. Further, I did not advise anyone to stop taking meetings with Comerica but these meetings have reportedly been unproductive, usually not attended by allt he Heirs, and unhelpful to administering the best interests of the Prince Estate for numerous reasons.
For clarity, since you referenced the Minutes, I have been advised and my clients have advised yout hat the Minutes you prepare under Comerica's name are incomplete, misleading and not accurate. Again, this is coming from them not me but you can continue to blame me for stating what they may not wish toc onfront you. This is why you must cease dealing with business matters without my involvement, as the business advisors of SNJ.
Let's agree that I will have my legal counsel speak with your counsel if you do not speak directly with my clients without my permission since I have an agreement ast heir business manager and advisor. Is that satisfactory?
If not, we should seek some way to reach an amicable agreement to do what's int he best interest of the Prince Estate and that isn ot doing things the way they have been going because things are pretty bad right now ....

Dear Londell,
1.
2. The Estate is committed to maximizing value to allo ft he heirs and with this in mind is workingt oward
Sop lease do not misstate that the Estate has taken action or discussed matters without due consideration and knowledge oft he facts.
3. Inquiry regarding was made during an heirs' meeting and via email. Referencet o the inquiry is included on the Minutes oft he meeting. I assume since you are Sharon, Norrine and John's business advisor, they are forwarding you the Minutes and you are reviewing. Weh ave repeatedly stated that we are happy to debrief the heirs' meetings with you and your clients. I sincerelyh ope that you are not now suggesting that you should dictate what Comerica can discuss at the heirs' meetings simply because your clients choose to attend. Moreover, regardless the business relationship youm ay have with your clients (weu nderstand you still maintain you are not acting as their attorney), it does not preclude us from communicating with them or keeping them duly informed oft he Estate's affairs. Comerica remains committed to communicating and maintaining as much transparency with the heirs as they are willing to accept.
4. When Comerica accepted appointment as Personal Representative, we committed to the Heirs that we would hold regular meetings to keep them informed and actively engaged in the administration oft he Estate. We intend toh onor that commitment. Personally, Sharon, Norrine and Johnny are ad elight. It would be a shame for you to continue to encourage them not to attend the heirs' meetings. Theya ll show a good grasp oft he matters discussed, raise pertinent issues and ask good questions. I can see no valid reason whyy ou would not encourage them to attend and participate in the me~tings,o ther than in
an improper attempt to control what information they receive. That ist oo bad-- since Comericai s entrusted with the authority to make decisions onb ehalf oft he Estate, it doesn't make sense that you would try to impede your clients' access to the Personal Representative. Tob e clear, and consistent with its obligation as af iduciary under Minnesota law, Comerica willc ontinue to provide information about the Estate, its assets, and its administration directly to all oft he Heirs. Wed on't knoww hyt hat would be ofc oncern to you, but to the extent that it is,y ou are ofc ourse free to raise anyc oncern with the Court.
Based on the tone and tenor ofy our most recent communication, coupled with the unwarranted, unprofessional and false personal attacks on Angela's and my characters and "temperment", pleased irect all communications going forward to our legal counsel.

and true love lives on lollipops and crisps

Oh please it’s entirely up to an artist (or whoever actually owns the work) to decided what they want to allow or go after. That’s why Prince eventually allowed his Coachella performance of Creep back on YouTube, because Radiohead said it’s our song and we’re OK with it being on YouTube. I’m guessing most artists think it’s counter productive or fan hostile to go after every crappy cell phone video of live performances, especially if it’s just one song or a portion of a song.

Coachella went back up because Prince did not own the song. You are right and just repeated what I said if you do not own the material you can do what you want with it i.e broadcast it.

Prince owned the publishing to his work so he decided he did not want it up on YOUTUBE and now that he is gone the Estate managers are not going to allow it because they are bound by the court and their contract with the heirs to enforce copyright protection.

Artist can stop these things because of copyright laws.
