The article focuses on the role played by the networking web site Myspace, www.myspace.com, in promoting music bands in China. Chinese musicians, which add upto 2,000 bands, have flooded onto MySpace, posting profiles and mostly English-language song tracks and videos. The announcement by Rupert Murdoch, chairman of News Corp., for creating the China-based MySpace, has created localized platforms for different countries around the world. Xiao Qiang, head of the China Internet Project at the University of California in Berkeley, California, said that as long as MySpace uses servers within China, it will be subject to all Chinese regulations and has to work under all relevant China Internet control agencies.
