    I doubt if it's illegal. It's done on Myspace all the time.
    Alright
    Tap the lightpole and we'll be jammin all night
    And ain't nobody callin' the cops
    'Cause everybody's here freakin', if they're older they're doin the rock
    And every block from all around
    Comes runnin' to the park when they hear the sound
    And soon the word's spreadin' through our part of town
    "Yo, 40 Park y'all, Jam-On's gettin down"
    Yeah...

    It may not be illegal, but it's completely lame when a Myspace entry has nothing to do with the person it's for. It's called "Myspace", not Hisspace or Herspace.

    BTW, don't fool around with Myspace. It's a cult.
    And don't buy a Saturn, either. That's a cult, too.

    Do you suppose they have paid ASCAP fees for each stream of the 4 songs? If so, I hope Be and JC get a share of the $$. I suspect they are infringing copyrights for those songs.

    They probably have no idea what ASCAP is. That part of it IS illegal.

    And here is how worried they are about copyright law. They probably hope to make everything go away with this FAQ:

    Q. How do I report a copyright violation?

    As an aside, MySpace is run on ColdFusion (I'm on the ColdFusion Engine team) and according to different statistic sites is either the fifth or most visited site on the web each day. If you're older than like 25 or so, though, you have no idea what myspace is. (I didn't till we made them go into license compliance with CF server licenses...)

    there we go, just right. keep walking...

    whats with all the "friends" ?????? some of them appear to be fake entries.. did some pm dawn fan make that account for promotion?? very weird..

    if the songs are getting played that often and its in that little player only then maybe its doing more promotion than harm.. myspace is a little weird

    i dont think theres anyway for an artist to get paid through myspace other than just promotion. all the accounts and hosting services are free. you are suppose to own the copyright to any material you post when you make a music account. i doubt the guy who made this had any malice intended, some people make an account for a band they like because the band themselves hadnt done so and wish to promote them.

    Hey, Brian, ask Be what he thinks about replacing those songs with the ones that freely stream from pmdawn.net (I assume there is no problem with those). In that case, Be could write in to the admins on the site saying it is his (band's) name and they will most likely give him control. Then he could give you guys who run things the keys to that and we can make it a nice place. That could do lots of promotion with the younger crowd... - if that is what we / PM dawn is looking for. Links to Amazon for buying the CDs, etc.
    Peace

    Seems they do know about ASCAP - infact they seem to be partnering with them:

    About ASCAP Atlanta
    ASCAP and MySpace.com have partnered together to put on a show in your community. We have booked a show in the area, and are leaving one slot open for a band we find through MySpace...it could be you! If you are a songwriter or in a band in Atlanta, all you need to do is add us as your friend, drop us a line, leave us a comment. Get in our face and you have a chance to play a great show on December 5th at Smiths Olde Bar with A Fir-Ju Well, Sovus Radio and The Gates Of Berlin! Be sure to visit our main MySpace for updates and more info about ASCAP! www.myspace.com/ascap
    Peace
