Prince and the new power lawsuit

Update: The Guardian runs a Prince fashion retrospective with the caption:

Hey, Prince fans...

Enjoy looking at your favourite singer's colourful costumes, but don't want to get sued? Don't fret: Guardian Unlimited Music has put together a gallery of some of his best outfits for you to peruse without having to worry about a lawsuit.
Which goes to my earlier question about how many photos of Prince are actually under his copyright control, and also quite nicely demonstrates that (a) ad-supported websites can often use a celebrity image to profit and (b) this plays as anti-fan and counterproductive.
