They had no room for fakesters. If a dog or a city or an idea had a page, they would delete it. Could anything better have happened to us?

It was a smart move for a traditional media company to make, in my view. My teen-age daughter maintains a page as do nearly all of her friends, it seems; the service is free for them , putting up photos and text, soliciting comments from her friends and commenting on their pages, listing favorite music and celebrities, chatting with her friends, etc. One male fellow student filled his page with photos of near-nude women and expressed his desire to participate in an orgy. That kid is never dating my daughter! MySpace is fairly loose with what it will allow, obviously. The terms of agreement that users must sign prohibits nudity, violence, and offensive subject matter. But that leaves plenty of room for teens to post stuff to their pages that will concern parents and educators but titillate their peers. I point this out not as a warning to parents well, they should be paying attention , but to point out what a different world traditional media companies like News Corp.
Slashdot is powered by your submissions , so send in your scoop. Actually, I think this is more of a threat to myspace itself. After all, they were hosting all of these pictures The backlash will be against myspace itself, by the "think of the children! Oh well, I have a hard time feeling sorry for myspace since a it's myspace and b it's owned by News Corp. This does bring up the interesting question though, of how one deals with kidporn that's being posted by the kids in the pictures. Obviously the nutjubs are going to go after whatever company is doing the hosting, but unless I'm missing something, if they're not aware of the content then all they have to do is make a good faith effort to delete anything they find, much like the case with copyright violations. Any legal experts on the laws concerned here no for sure what sort of issues this brings up?
