Texas authorities arrest 7 former MySpace members

vivaoporto writes "Reuters reports that Texas police arrested seven convicted sex offenders after MySpace handed over identity details about the former members of the Internet social network. The arrests, which occurred over a two-week period, come after authorities in several states asked MySpace to hand over information on convicted sex offenders. MySpace began working with authorities in May after tense negotiations over the legality of divulging its users' information. Most states require convicted sex offenders to register their contact information with local authorities after being released from prison. Lawmakers are now pushing for the registration of valid e-mail addresses as part of the requirement."
