Here’s the added feature: MySpace will also scan thousands of Web journals and news sites and group results by categories such as sports and politics. As part of the service, MySpace will pull and display headlines from the outside news sites, a practice that contributed to legal challenges against Google. The search engine leader recently reached a settlement with Agence France-Presse and earlier with The Associated Press.
The new feature uses technology developed by Newroo, which MySpace parent News Corp. bought last year.
