Viewers' videos on NECN

NECN will air viewers' videos, post them on Web:
"New England Cable News viewers will get their own shot at becoming broadcast journalists on July 15, when the news network debuts ''Video New England,' a website feature that allows viewers to upload digital video that might then be posted on the website or broadcast on the network."
That's what I'm talking about!

I'm waiting to hear the details on exclusivity and ownership.

Steve Safran from NECN emails me with the details. Steve says that NECN has built an:
... interface for people to upload their video to us, then we take a look at it and if it's good, we post it and put it on TV. We have the right to broadcast and stream, but we're not paying for the video, so the user keeps ownership rights.
