You can embed the MySpace player and use the unique ID variable to hotlink the video.

I find the idea amusing as I often have to stop MySpacers hotlinking my stuff.

I wouldn't do it myself, though presumably NewsCorp can afford the bandwidth.

A while back, someone asked a similar question about the copyright issues of using other people's YouTube videos....

Legal issues with using Video?
Want a video library on my site

But even if you have the permission of the "someone" you mention, as Samizdata points out, the use of NewsCorp's bandwidth may be an issue.
