There's not much more than that you can do. (I don't have a MySpace account so I'm assuming that this rule is not clearly explained)
you know, from what i've read about their rules - ok - they were right, there was something written there about covering songs. so yes, i've made a mistake and i'm fully aware of it.
i just think, that general copyright laws, are getting sicker with time. personally if i would be a famous artist, i wouldn't mind if people would creatively use the loops from my songs, or even the whole melodies, unless they labeled them as their own - that's not fair. when i loop a song, i always place the name of the composer or at least artist who played it, just to be honest.
now i realise there is a written law, which i've broken, but come on, should everything on this world become so formalized? i wouldn't be surprised if they'll eventually come up with a law, which will require us to get a permission (or buy!) for using names of famous people in private conversations...
i'm definitely FOR 'copyleft' policy, it seems the most sensible way of dealing with the problem.
