BBC using MMS for article pictures
Posted on 12-Feb-2003 07:55 | Tags Filed under: News



BBC is asking users of camera-enable mobile phones to send them pictures of protests against the war. It's one of the first times this technology (MMS) is used this way. It's usual for users to upload their material to BLOGs, picture sites, etc but this is a news story made live!

If you want to send your picture from your mobile phone, dial +44 7970 885089. You can send them from any network or phone. Please send the large full size images (usually 640x480 pixels) taken by the mobiles. Otherwise they are too small to publish.

Their fine print says "If you submit an image, you do so in accordance with the BBC's Terms and Conditions. In contributing to BBC News Online you agree to grant us a royalty-free, non-exclusive licence to publish and otherwise use the material in any way that we want, and in any media. "
