Myspace Stealing Music?

(punkbands) Is Myspace Stealing Artists' Music? Billy Bragg certainly seems to think so. He's pulled his music off the site and below is an explanation posted on his official myspace page.

Someone who we work with was bright enough to read the small print of the MySpace terms and conditions and found that once an artist posts up any content (including songs), it then belongs to My Space (AKA Rupert Murdoch) and they can do what they want with it, throughout the world without paying the artist.[not exactly true, they can do what they want with it within the Myspace service, see the full story to read the "clause in question" which basically is a cover our ass legally clause not a license to steal. The person was "bright enough" to read the find print, just not understand it. The full story also have a comment from Myspace about this ludicrous controversy.] - Click here for the Full Story
