Abstract: $ {h_1}$ is an ergodic conservative transformation on a $ \sigma $-finite measure space and $ {h_2}$ is an ergodic measure preserving transformation on a finite measure space. We study the point spectrum properties of $ {h_1} \times {h_2}$. In particular we show $ {h_1} \times {h_2}$ is ergodic if and only if $ {h_1} \times {h_2}$ have no eigenvalues in common other than the eigenvalue 1. The conditions on $ {h_1},{h_2}$ stated above are in a sense the most general for the validity of this result.
