Myspace fall from popularity

Heard an interesting interview on national radio today from a couple of tech gurus (can't remember who). They were saying that myspace is fast losing popularity with teenagers because of the clamp down on publishing of copyright music on people's myspace pages.

This brings up an interesting discussion about the role of social networking spaces. It isn't illegal to play your favourite music to your friends when they visit. What about playing it to your friends when they visit you online? Mmmmmm. Interesting issue. It would be worth having this discussion with the children and young people and see their view. What if you posted your song and someone else copied it? What if they made it into a hit and started selling it?
