One Step Forward, Two Steps Back -Billy Bragg Forces Myspace Rule Change

Billy Bragg

In an earlier post which is located here, I mentioned how Billy Bragg had pulled his songs from MySpace, due to a clause in the MySpace Terms of Service which gave MySpace the right to sub-license Billy Bragg’s music to any company MySpace wanted and keep the royalities themselves without paying a penny.

Well it looks as though, Bill Bragg’s protest has led to a change in MySpace’s Terms of Service.

Could this be a step forward for the popular social networking site?

But for every one step forward, there is Two Steps Back.

MySpace is planning new restrictions on how adults may contact its younger users in response to growing concerns about the safety of teenagers who frequent the site, but those new security measures won’t be enough to stop online child predators.
