Yahoo extends Flickr with video

By on April 9, 2008, 8:27 AM
Flickr has built up a global following as an online photo management and sharing application, but now the Yahoo-owned company is hoping to carve a niche in an online arena dominated by YouTube with the launch of its own and much-awaited video-sharing feature.

However, only Pro account members, who pay the $24.95 annual fee, will be able to upload the videos, which are limited to 150MB in size and 90 seconds in length – quite less than YouTube’s generous 10-minutes. The reason for the 90-second limit? According to the company, to encourage creativeness and discourage copyright infringement at the same time.

...and Yahoo! never made any attempts to suspend Flickr accounts that are full of copyrighted images.
