MySpace has given Montreal idie band Mobile back the MySpace URL it took from them last week. Hypeot's request for a response from MySpace to last week's post After Two Years, MySpace Hijacks A Band's URL netted this official statement:
"MySpace has reinstated the registered URL www.myspace.com/mobile to the band--this was an error on our part and we apologize for any inconvenience caused. The band's profile has not been altered in any way."
MySpace had taken the URL http://www.myspace.com/mobile which Mobile had used for two years and redirected it to its new mobile offering. But Hypebot readers and others across the net expressed their displeasure and MySpace listened. Score one for the little guy and the power of the web.
