A friend of mine earlier today contacts me on MSN messenger and says "Take a look at my space" I take a quick look, and he's got music playing there! I ask him how to do this and he sends me the link to a page which tells you how to do it. Amongst other things there it lists how to get a module that lets you use custom HTML...

Now not to give you guys and ideas (I trust that nearly all of you a responsaible enough not to do this), would it be possible to call a remote file (JavaScript etc) and effectivly attack the MSN Space servers...

Just wondering about that, and the potential damage that could be done...what are your thoughts?

Oh and to add to that, I believe this would infringe some copyright laws if you were playing files that you didn't create, correct?
