    End of the day, I upload a 2-3min clip at 96kbps quality, it's not really any use.

    Finally, my tunes suck :teeth:

    Wrong.

    Translation of the terms:

    1) Myspace has a license to use the material you post THROUGH and in connection with its services (site, communicator, etc.). This is contained in the terms to allow Myspace to distribute copyrighted material.

    In some jurisdictions this license is invalid because a license requires a written contract and signature.

    2) The license expires when the material is removed from the site.

    Its a bit paranoid on Myspace lawyers' side as an implicit license is granted through the uploading but I can understand why this is contained in the terms.

    This is not the same crap as Yahoo pulled years ago.

    The WIGU guy should stick to writing comics.

    Myspace is not claiming ownership of your material JUST the right to provide the material over the net as part of Myspace BUT only for as long as you keep the material on Myspace.

    Back in the day, Yahoo tried to grab the copyright on your material just for your uploading.

    Myspace is a load of crap but there is misinformation being spread:


    By displaying or publishing ("posting") any Content, messages, text, files, images, photos, video, sounds, profiles, works of authorship, or any other materials (collectively, "Content") on or through the Services, you hereby grant to MySpace.com, a non-exclusive, fully-paid and royalty-free, worldwide license (with the right to sublicense through unlimited levels of sublicensees) to use, copy, modify, adapt, translate, publicly perform, publicly display, store, reproduce, transmit, and distribute such Content on and through the Services. This license will terminate at the time you remove such Content from the Services.


    The Services offered by MySpace.com ("Myspace.com" or "we") include the MySpace.com Website (the "Website"), the MySpace.com instant messenger, and any other features, content, or applications offered from time to time by MySpace.com in connection with the Website (collectively, the "Services")

    They are not demanding a license for usage outside of the website.

    Its a load of legalese and you cannot quote fragments or take parts of out context.

    No jokes about viewing apparatus of teh magnifying kind should be made at this point, no matter how tempted you are, as it may force people to proove you wrong by posting pictures of aforesaid genitals, but would advise against posting the picture on myspace or they may own your genitals??????
