Prince charged Arrested Development (the band) for using one word from his song

Recommended Posts

Tennessee was a huge hit in 1992, for pioneer hip hop band Arrested Development, yes the band sued The Creators of the TV show of the same name and won, name stayed, but Ron Howard had to pay a license to use the TV show name from the band, as the band bought the copyright back in 1993 to Arrested Development...


Prince, However charged the band 100,000 for using one word from his 1988 Hit Alphabet, St from 1988's Lovesexy, Speech Said prince did him a favor, by just charging them, cos if he did take them to Court and If he won, the single and track would have been deleted and shelved. 


So by charging the band, not only did he do them a favor, but a valuable lesson.
