    Well about 6 months ago there was a listing on ebay for the myspace.com/videos web address. This is just like any other page but this guy must have been one of the first few people to get on myspace but anyways the auction ended at a little over 10 grand. :eek: Well since I saw that I went to see who owned myspace.com/music and it was some kid and I offered to buy it from him but he kept ignoring me and I was like listen. I'll give you 100 bucks for the page. This kid was obviously dumb to the internet because he said, you live all the way across the country how are you gonna get me the money. I told him various ways but he still ignored me and i just gave up. Well now the /music page and /videos pages are the main pages for myspace's music and videos lol. What an opportunity that could have been. Do you think myspace paid off the people who had their names or just took them away from them?

    Surely they at least gave them something right? Maybe not cash but idk something like free plasma tv or what not lol but wow that would suck to pay 10 grand for the videos one and then turn around and have myspace take it away from you for nothing

    Myspace wouldn't be obligated to give them anything since it's covered in the ToS, but they probably did out of generosity. if not myspace is pretty dick haha

    Well...you're the one with the guys contact info...ask him if he got anything out of it.

    Who knows...perhaps you actually dodged a bullet...you might have paid $1,000 only to have myspace TAKE the url from you a week later. :)

    I too messaged that Richard guy a few times trying to get it from him.

    Before he had it there was an actual music profile (with no songs) which meant there was a profile views counter and the page was getting about 3k hits per day.
