First it was Last.fm, now it’s Kodak. The credit crunch continues to threaten our beloved free internet. Kodak’s new policy for photo storage on its site: pay up or die.
Members with photo storage of 2 gigabytes (GB) or less must make annual minimum purchases totaling at least $4.99. Members with photo storage exceeding 2GB must make annual minimum purchases totaling at least $19.99. Failure to meet this requirement may result in your photos being deleted from the Gallery.
Well, that can go one of two ways. Either Kodak’s faithful cough up and keep the camera company in cash or they desert the film brand for free (and better) photo sites such as Flickr, Picasa or even Facebook. Wonder which they’ll go for?
