MySpace China Says Its Chief Will Resign

The International Herald Tribune reports on MySpace’s latest setback in China:

The chief executive of MySpace China, the social networking site, has resigned slightly more than a year after bringing the site to China.

A spokeswoman for MySpace China confirmed that the executive, Luo Chuan, planned to resign, but declined to comment on the reasons.

The departure of Luo, who was once a Microsoft China executive, is a setback for News Corp., which had licensed the MySpace brand name in China in an effort to expand its media and Internet presence.
