Having already unleashed his legal fury on his own fans, Prince and his Paisley Park lawyers are suing a Norway record company for releasing a 5-CD cover album of the Purple One's songs. Shockadelica, an 81-track album featuring all Norwegian artists, already released its run of 5,000 copies when the label, C + C Records, sent a copy to Prince as a goodwill gesture. Instead, Prince's legal team swiftly requested that Shockadelica be pulled and all copies destroyed. All artists involved with the album weren't paid for their contribution, and Shockadelica is, for the moment, still available online. To exacerbate matters, one band called Frost has made their cover of "Sex Shooter" available as a free download on their website. The whole thing seems quite hypocritical of Prince, as the Coachella audience can attest Minneapolis' favorite son has no problem with borrowing other people's songs.
