MySpace Deletes 29,000 Sex Offender Profiles

MySpace -- which has faced (and presumably continues to face) civil litigation over the torts of its users -- announced this week that it has removed 29,000 registered sex offenders from its membership.

MySpace has not commented on the attorneys generals' proposals for requiring parental consent and monitoring or on the Clayton case. Representatives declined to provide interviews Wednesday. The company claims the use of Sentinel Tech's database is one in a series of steps to make the site safer.
