Prince On YouTube

We are not a news outlet, but we are an entertainment website and this is a significant development in the entertainment world. After years of Prince and YouTube squashing any live or studio videos of Prince's music, the online video outlet has opened up the doors and allowed live and studio Prince videos to be posted online.

It looks like the change in policy started yesterday and continues. Normally, YouTube pulls a Prince video within minutes of it being posted. But videos that were posted yesterday are still available and fans should take advantage of YouTube's generosity before it ends.

Prince videos are being uploaded at a furious pace, and many are getting hundreds of thousands of views in a matter of minutes. YouTube has started to limit the sound on full albums and has even pulled a few full albums already, but there are hundreds of live performance videos being posted every hour that are still available.
