(Undated) -- Prince is cracking down on bootleggers - hard. The pop star has filed a 22-million-dollar lawsuit against a Facebook group and Internet bloggers who posted links to downloads of his live concerts from the 1980s. Citing the complaint filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, TheWrap.com says Prince accuses the defendants of engaging in "massive infringement and bootlegging" of his material. He says the Facebook group and the website WorldofBootleg.blogspot.com featured more than 363 copyright infringing music file links. He's also asking for a permanent injunction to stop users from further violating his copyrights.
