News Corp explores swap of MySpace site for Yahoo! stake [business.timesonline.co.uk]
Don't know if I caught it first... but according to the Times, Ruport Murdoch is looking to take a huge stake on Yahooo in exchange for giving it MySpace.
|A deal would demonstrate a remarkably swift return on News Corpís investment in MySpace, which it acquired for $580 million in summer 2005. |
Mind you, the Times IS Rupert Murdoch, so no deal done yet!

A thread was started on it yesterday morning in the other forum:
MySpace is a huge legal headache, how would it be worthwhile Yahoo to get involved in that? Where's the percentage with the kind of outlay for legal expenses?
