Considering how easy it is for users/fans to post music from bands, a certain percentage of "unlicensed songs" has to be expected on any major socially driven site. And even with diligence, it's near impossible to delete all unlicensed songs, because as soon as you delete one, another pops up. A lot of bands should be happy people care enough to actually post their music…

As a musician, I recently signed in to my myspace account, only to find MY music had been removed due to copyright infringement. These are original songs, written by me, and performed by me. I inquired Myspace copyright, and they stated that Merlin is saying they own it. NOT TRUE. Sounds to me like Merlin is trolling the internet trying to steal songs for their own uses. I'm currently persuing the issue.
