I am pretty sure much of the demise of MySpace belongs to the site and the tons of garbage that ended up on it. When something "better" came along the alternative took over (FB). I am not a fan of either, but the better, stronger, more evolved system prevailed.

Thanks for getting rid of the free mp3 download option, Rupert.

Rupert Murdoch is a nefarious war mongering con-artist running a large part of the US media. His purchase of My Space was enough to cause a massive exodous. When he purchased photobucket.com a massive exodous also ensued.

Hopefully soon the fate of Myspace will also befall on Apple and Facebook. Both of those companies also thrive on the ignorance of those they infest.

I don' know SOPA in details, but for me regarding piracy, if the basic principles are :
1) against piracy centers and not end users (always centers in piracy due to the need for catalogs and search amongst other things, "peer to peer" also a lot of hypocrisy in the terms and everybody knows it)
2) No monitoring at all of end users flow, collect of their IPs a formal complaint from somebody about a user acting as a center
3) All procedures are legal and public
Then it clearly is the right way to do it, not to forget that if piracy doesn't create any revenues for authors and creators, it does create some (and not a little) for some people :

Note : above more developed below (but in French) :

And "zero piracy" doesn't matter in anyway (not more than school kids exchanging files), problem is when it becomes the default and easiest access method for works and publications.
But on this, in order to have a real "user experience" added value in buying instead of pirating, and this in a non quasi monopolistic environment (or with just 2 or three "monsters"), clearly something like below would be required :

" Rupert Murdock losing money makes a very happy nerd."

When a parasite like Rupert Murdoc with his tenticles so deep in the minds
of ordinary people loses money, it is likely he will then have the herd pushed into
another cash generating proxy war that can provide him with ample financial opportunities to extort more wealth from his hosts. Such a war is already in the horizon.

del35 - where did people go when they left photobucket ?

I hated the junk, clutter and garbage that was on the main screen. That and there were too many way to post updates. Massive design failure.

And people seem to place so much "faith" in this guy because of his wealth. Personally, I don't think that "faith" is warranted. Even someone like him makes mistakes, and when someone like him makes a mistake, it seems to be extravagantly large - as recent headlines prove. IMHO, his is yet another mega-rich, megalomaniac. The sooner the world gets over their obsession with this guy, the better - IMHO.

This psychopath needs to be imprisoned and all of his wealth confiscated and used to fix all the harm he's done to truth and freedom of the press.

MySpace? Who cares about MySpace? I'm more concerned with political propoganda machines disguised as news outlets: Fox News I'm talking about YOU.
