If i've got this right theres a distinct possibility that theres a circuitbenders.co.uk facebook page at

http://www.facebook.com/pages/circuitbenderscouk/66297091436

If you're lucky then that page might even have slightly more regular news updates than the main site, on the other hand, maybe not. Thats the exciting risk you'll have to run.  ;D

To be honest i'm not entirely sure what purpose facebook pages serve, but the hip kids tell me its all the rage these days.

QUICK! Get over there and make us look popular!

And do you now feel better about yourself and the world in a small, and yet very distinct way?  ;)

Well you have a point, but still...

 The copyright laws are hard to beat and they could fine you if you have the same images on your site, be sensible about this and get the fuck out of there!

but still the question remains, even if they did actually have full copyright to those images, which they don't, why would they bother about enforcing it?

Imagine how many millions of companies and individual's have pages on Facebook, is it really likely they are going to be enforcing these legendary copyright rules for everyone? Is it likely even for a tiny percentage? I don't think so somehow.

For a start, they changed the rules on image rights and so many people complained and left that they had to change them back. Whats going to happen if they started trying to enforce complete copyright over images on their site on even a tiny percentage of users?

Does myspace ever enforce their legendary ownership rights over every tune thats uploaded? No they don't because they aren't idiots.

This is called scaremongering isn't it?  ::)

 It could be something that they are working on and if there is money to be made then they will do what they can.

and then how many people would upload their tunes to myspace in any kind of listenable form ever again? Not many, and then myspace would go under. I don't think they really want to take on DefJam for copyright of the Rihanna tunes on myspace, or madonna, or whoever owns the Beatles or the Rolling Stones.

As i say, Myspace and Facebook aren't idiots. They need people to use the site to make money so these are rules they are never going to enforce, even if they actually exist in any valid form in the first place which is dubious.
