MySpace & MTV are testing out a new method that allows them to actually profit from piracy

MySpace has a huge piracy problem that just will not go away.  Instead of trying to take down all copyright-protected videos that its members post, they will let certain clips stay and give the creators some money.

Revenue generated from the ads will be shared by MySpace, Auditude and the content copyright holders.  MySpace will tag these videos with a semitransparent bar across the bottom of a video that give viewers information like the episode's original air date and a link to buy the episode.
