Prince didn’t have videos up on Youtube because he didn’t get paid for them and it pulling his live footage probably made people buy more Prince tickets.
There is an article over here about how all sorts of awesome Prince footage is hitting Youtube and sure enough there are ads for diapers and cleaning supplies and all manner of other Google advertising before every video.
This is exactly what Prince was talking about. Google/Youtube makes the money first and hands out crumbs (if at all) later.
They should take those ads away from those Prince videos or take the videos down. Fuck Google.
