MySpace Steals BandSpace

by M. David Peterson

Update (May 30th, 2007): Thanks for all of your *enlightening* comments, everyone! But I think the time to kill this thread has long since come overdue..

With no advance notice or explanation, Baton Rouge indie rockers Bones have lost their long-established Myspace URL (www.myspace.com/bones) to the FOX Television show of the same name. Bones, the band, has used www.myspace.com/bones for nearly 2 years, racking up close to 20,000 profile views, over 21,000 song plays and over 2100 Myspace friends.


Apparently when they decided on the name MySpace, they really meant it!

NOTE: Apparently the band got it back, but as per my follow-up comment to Sylvain,

regardless of the fact they gave it back, it goes to show the mentality of the folks running the show at myspace...


NOTE-TO-WWW: Go get *YOUR OWN SPACE* (meaning, your own URI) and then link to it from whatever happens to be the latest "rage with the kids." If this proves nothing else, it proves that nothing belongs to you unless *YOU* maintain control of what it is used for. While technically speaking you only "own" your domain name if you continue to pay the yearly fees, @ $8.95 or less this shouldn't be problem for *ANYBODY* to maintain. Unless, of course, your band *REALLY* sucks. In that case maybe you should worry more about practicing than maintaining a web presence, but for $8.95 a year you would have to *REALLY*, *REALLY* suck, so while practice is still important, maintaining your own URI is *MORE* important.

And if the comments are any indication here we get a real indication of what the "computer literate" populace of MySpace is REALLY like ... sigh.
