MySpace faces royalty charges

By Justin Mann on
MySpace could be facing some financial woes soon, with the payment of royalties being discussed. Pay royalties to whom? Musicians, of course, and a broad range of them. Being that background music and clips compose a portion of many MySpace pages, some expect the people behind these pages to track that and pay up. As absurd as that may sound, it's being questioned right now. Some are saying that is ridiculous, but there are a seldom few Internet companies that do pay royalties for using music clips like any other company would. Should MySpace be any different, due to the nature of the content on it? And who would pay, the people composing the pages or the people operating the company?
