Myspace OWNS your posted content....

This is so chilling as to defy belief!!!!!!

I think very, very few musicians on MySpace know about this at all (see 

I know that Tribe.net  is about to add both audio and video files.
I've been in contact with them (lobbying heavily for this service because 
they have
lost out so much to MySpace) so I will write them and ask them what their 
response is to this policy
and what policy they , themselves intend.

If I get a satisfactory and respectful answer to this situation I"ll let 
everyone know and
then, perhaps we can start a    Live Loopers at Tribe.net    thread.

Mark Sottilaro already has a Cycletronica tribe at tribe for loopers
and I started a LiveLoopers tribe there,  so we already have some presence.

More to come...............................
