Yahoo/Reuters Team For Cameraphone News Service

Yahoo and Reuters have teamed up to launch a citizen news service, at least for photos. The new service is called You Witness, and is linked to Yahoo’s recently purchased YouTube service (brain fart — I’m not sure where I read that, but obviously You Tube was bought by Google, not Yahoo). The photos will be placed on and Yahoo news — people won’t be paid unless their photos get chosen for commercial syndication.
