Ourmedia, a site where citizen-media types — especially podcasters and video producers — can upload and discuss their work, has launched a 2.0 version of the site. The page is much clearer in its aims than before, with a clean design and many tools for citizen media creators.
Ourmedia is an alternative to YouTube, Blip.tv and other sites offering similar uploading and display capability, with a key difference. The default copyright license is a Creative Commons license, which reserves some but not all control for the copyright holder. This encourages spreading of good work in ways that honor copyright but don’t abuse it.
(Note: JD Lasica, director and co-founder of Ourmedia, is an advisor to this center and was project leader on our Principles of Citizen Journalism project. I’m also on the Ourmedia board of advisors.)
