In recent weeks, MySpace relaunched with a refreshed and updated look. Along with the launch of the updated website also came the launch of a new single via MySpace from Justin Timberlake. Timberlake is minority partner in the social network.
One of the major focuses for MySpace is music. According to an association that negotiates deals on behalf of record labels around the world called Merlin, MySpace is using some music without permission. Charles Caldas, Merlin CEO, says that MySpace still has music from some major independent record labels on its site even though their contract expired a year ago.
MySpace says that if music is still on its site from labels that it doesn't have a contract with, users have uploaded the songs. MySpace also says that it will remove those songs at the request of the record label. “While it’s nice that Mr. Timberlake is launching his service on this platform, and acting as an advocate for the platform,” Mr. Caldas said, “on the other hand his peers as artists are being exploited without permission and not getting remuneration for it.”

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
