LOS ANGELES, CA Monday Sep.17.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Prince is planning to sue web giants YouTube and eBay for using his music without permission, reports FMQB.com.

The veteran musician feels that the folks who run these sites and others, such as Pirate Bay, could do much more to prevent unauthorized clips from being posted on the internet.

Prince's camp made a statement saying, "YouTube... are clearly able [to] filter porn and pedophile material but appear to choose not to filter out the unauthorized music and film content which is core to their business success."

"Prince strongly believes artists as the creators and owners of their music need to reclaim their art."
