If you're working on a DIV layout, and you update the page to find out that myspace has put a Terms of Service Violation gif on your page, then you're doing something that's against the myspace terms of service, but if you haven't finished your page, or if you're working with a testing profile, this can be very annoying.

Look within your code for any images that you're using for backgrounds and the such.
<img src=\"http://x.myspace.com/images/tos.gif\" />
You see there, myspace replaced one of my main images with their .gif, the simple fix to this is replace their .gif back with the image link that you want.

The reason some photos are showing up "TOS Violation" is because Myspace blacklists certain Photobucket urls for some reason - it's a glitch.
What you have to do, is re-upload the image somewhere else, like Tinypic. Once you upload it there, get the new url, paste it in, and I can guarantee you the picture will show up.

Myspace does NOT do that just because they want to. The reason they do that, is because your using the WRONG image url. When putting an image on your page..make sure you're always using the DIRECT LINK for that image.

So putting the same image link back after myspace puts the TOS violating GIF will not work.
