At Coachella in April, Prince covered Radiohead's "Creep", which was put on Youtube. Crazy Prince demanded that the video be taken down, claiming copyright violation.

Because Prince does not own the song, he has no right to block the video. Thom Yorke said that even he wasn't allowed to see the video, due to Prince's blocking, of his own song, which Thom thought was "hilarious". Thom also said in an interview: "Really? He's blocked it?" Surely we should block it. Hang on a moment." Yorke added, "Well, tell him to unblock it. It's our ... song."

Prince fans have organized to urge him to relent on his legal fights and attempts to control images and photographs of himself. As of yesterday, the most popular YouTube clip about Prince playing "Creep" is an expletive-laden rant from Sam Conti Jr., who describes himself as a "former Prince fan."
