Pair Engaged in Illegal Activity Related to MySpace Enter Plead

According to Yahoo News (AP) here two men plead guilty to illegal computer access for crimes related to MySpace.  Perhaps the more interesting aspect of the case is that these young men were arrested in LA for crimes occurring in New York.  When the crime relates to a computer, jurisdiction can be almost anywhere- the location of the keystroke, the location of the damage, or the location it passes through.  This is yet another example of this happening.
