MySpace: Not Quite Full Of The Whole Truth

February 28th, 2007 | researchmaterial

MySpace say “If a widget violates our TOS, we block them. Breaches would include any person, widget or software that violates copyright, poses security risks, distributes pornography or engages in commercial activity.” So they’re blocking widgets by the likes of Imeem and Revver. Goodness, why would the purveyors of MySpace Video, owned by News Corp, want to block a Revver widget? I can’t possibly imagine why they wouldn’t want people to use widgets from a company that allows people to get paid for their videos.

But if all this is true, why does MySpace allow page-customising sites like FVX to make people’s profiles completely bypass almost all internal MySpace links and direct clicks to them instead?
