I read somewhere that since Prince doesn't own the rights to the song "1999" anymore, we was going to go back in the studio and re-record it note-for-note, and re-release the song under his ownership. I imagine this is the same concept.
I thought that I read on the list that someone is very quietly trying to arrange to buy the rights back from Fire.
This is one of those situations where I can't figure out for the life of me how it can be so complicated, but it really is. While it would be nice to go over to the HQ of Fire records, barge into the president's office, write a check, and walk out with the "rights", its probably not that simple.
