MASHABLE - Jan 22 - The new Myspace is now open to all, shifting the aging social network's focus toward building connections between musicians and fans. Merlin, an U.K.-based agency that represents many independent record labels, says Myspace is using the music of its artists without permission. The group used to have a deal with the old MySpace and its MySpace Music service, but the agreement expired over a year ago. A spokesperson for Myspace said that if any music from the Merlin group is on Myspace that it was "likely" uploaded by individual users. The rep also said Myspace would remove any songs if Merlin requested it. But Merlin is preparing a legal response.
