Dan Gillmor on Current.TV’s Submission TermsPosted: June 29, 2005
Dan Gillmor writes about Current.TV’s submission terms. They basically want exclusive rights to the content submitted to them to be exclusive for 3 months. And, tops, they’re only paying $1k for the content. That’s not only bottom-rack pricing it’s also ridiculous to ask people to have their content tied up just by submitting it to Current.TV. I met Dan on the last day of Gnomedex as we were leaving, and he’s a great guy. If anyone’s going to lead us in the charge for new-media journalism, it’s definitely him, and I don’t think we could ask for anyone better to do it. Thanks for your hard work, Dan.
