Good eye!  This is pretty standard boilerplate.  What it says is that 
MySpace aka FOX, can use your content as long as you have it 
posted.  They don't own it but you've granted them a nonexclusive 
license to use it any way they damn please.  The nice thing is that 
the license terminates the instant you remove your content from 
MySpace.  So if you go platinum, no worries. ;-)
