MySpace: Content Information-Part Two

MySpace has quite a list of things that are not acceptable for members to post. Each member is responsible for the content of everything posted but MySpace reserves the right to terminate any member for posting content that is not deemed appropriate.

You are not allowed to post anything that promotes or furthers criminal activity or that gives information that could instruct others about illegal activities.  This would include instruction on how to violate someone’s privacy, how to make or buy illegal weapons or how to provide or create computer viruses.

MySpace prohibits members from posting a photograph of another person without that person’s consent.

Members are not allowed to do any posting that involves commercial activities and/or sales without the prior written consent of MySpace.  This includes advertising, contests, sweepstakes, barter or pyramid schemes.

Band and filmmaker profiles can not use sexually explicit or suggestive imagery.  Misleading, unfair or deceptive content that is intended to draw traffic to these profiles is also prohibited.

You may not post any content that solicits personal identifying information or passwords for commercial or unlawful purposes from other MySpace users.

Any post that contains password only, restricted, hidden pages, or images that are not linked to or from another accessible page is not allowed.

MySpace states in the terms and conditions section that they can refuse or reject any post that contains any of the above content.  This does not mean that they will do so.  It is also stated that MySpace can delete any content that is judged to be offensive or illegal.  Once again, this does not mean that all prohibited content is monitored and/or deleted.
