The Day the Music Died–on MySpace


MySpace just got a whole lot less fun. FOX is going to comb through the files to find sites using copywrite music. Repeat offenders will be barred from the site.

FOX licensed technology from Gracenote which compares
music on individual pages with Gracenote’s database of copyright material and can block uploads without proper rights. And so many 15 year olds think of synch rights when building a page in honor of Horse.

FBLA wonders FOX didn’t think of this sooner.
