[Notes from a story on Sunday]

Myspace issues

5 families suing Myspace; girls say they were sexually assaulted by 
men they met online
myspace lacks the security protections to protect young children

As a result the company is:
installing monitoring software
issuing amber alerts about missing children (amber alert is a US 
thing for missing kids)
still saying it's a shared responsibility with parents

all the accused sex offenders have been charged, 2 are serving 
sentences. I guess that means meatspace law does work.
