Looks like Yahoo and Reuters are getting into the ‘citizen journalism’ game – though we’ll have to wait and see what this actually turns into.

Yahoo! and Reuters are creating a website to collect video and photos taken by readers.
The site is called You Witness and will be available from tomorrow here.
Initially, the service will provide stills and video media for the Yahoo! website, but from early next year the content will be offered to other Reuters customers. Yahoo! is still deciding how punters will be paid if their photos are sold on. Most existing services split the proceeds 50:50.
