[b]NEW YORK[/b] - News Corp.'s Web network MySpace has been in talks for several months with online auction company eBay Inc. about a partnership, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday, citing people familiar with the matter.

The idea is to let MySpace users buy and sell items from each other using eBay's online-commerce technology and its PayPal payment system, the Journal said.

MySpace users would be able to post items for sale on their profiles, and their eBay auctions would be automatically updated, according to a person close to the discussions.

this sounds like a debacle waiting to happen...

if they're going to do this, they gotta have a much better security system and options as to who you allow to bid/buy your items. most of the people that use myspace are idiots, think of all the phishing that will go on. this is like a scammers dream come true.
