    @tali: well, it depends. to me, a blackmail universe with no school shootings might be better than a non-blackmail universe with school shootings, but we're not even considering such extreme trade-offs here. people who want to stay anonymous on blogs will manage to.

    Well I think there is a difference between instant messaging and phone/mail. As I already said I don't discuss many important things on instant messaging that anyone could take an advantage from reading it so that I would care anyhow, even though it is, of course, a personal matter.

    "MySpace has a nonexclusive, fully paid and a royalty-free worldwide license to use, copy, modify, adapt, translate, publicly display, store, reproduce, transmit and distribute any content uploaded to the site"

    Also means that when you remove it they don't have that right anymore. As far as I've heard at least.

    Maybe im way off but now that you mention this to me it seems less like a "screw all artists" scam and more of an "amateur/webcam whore porn" scheme.

    No, once its uploaded they can store it and do as they please with it. Uploaded only covers you sending it to myspace servers, just because you remove doesnt means you didnt upload in the first place, so myspace would be covered.

    Those fuckers are going to steal my band's logo. I'll avoid putting up any decent music now.

    That would certainly be in keeping with what little I've seen of myspace outside of DT's page...

    Do you have to give credit? That's all I would care about.

    I actually doubt that, given the enormous amount of material that goes up on myspace it would be quite expensive for them to store it somewhere. And they would not be able to make money on it anyway, mainly because of how bad it would look for them to 'steal' material. They would make infinitly more money on making sure people keep coming to myspace rather than fuck a band and get a 'bad rep' where they start losing ad income.
    Let's not forget a similar case has never been to trial either. So it's not even certain their 'contract' holds up.
    I also don't see how this would work in reality either. I own my music, and they cannot prove who has uploaded my songs on myspace, I could say that another bandmember who does not own the copyright uploaded it. Which would make their contract void. Since you can't give away someone else's music/art.

    MySpace is owned in part by Rupert Murdoch, which means anything on there can be televised on Fox News, no questions asked. Wonderful, isn't it?

    And the big deal is? Unless you're putting up porn pics of yourself (and maybe even then) I suppose the publicity is good.
    As I've mentioned before, there still is no way for them to prove who has uploaded the material and thus they can't make any money from it anyway by selling it.
