ABSTRACT
This article describes the measures that MySpace is taking to protect its users from sexual predators. A recent lawsuit filed by the mother of a 13-year-old girl who was sexually assaulted by a 19-year-old male she met at the social networking site has made the risks of the site apparent. MySpace has hired Hemanshu Nigam to help them police their site. Although Nigam has experience prosecuting sexual predators, his biggest challenge will be figuring out a way to ascertain users' real ages.
