Using a Java Application, Net Artist, Km Asendorf is exploring the boundaries of the “Unlimited Upload and Storage” usage agreement that Flickr claims for their Pro account members. In hopes of exploiting this claim, the artist is posting a small file of about 4KB, 3.600 times every hour. Within one hour, the total amount of upload will be approximately 14.4MB, which would leave the artist well with in the Flickr Terms of Use and spotless of a “Bandwidth Abuser” title.

It will be interesting to see where and if Flickr will cut the feed or suspend the uploads for Kim. I would love to see it continue until Kim has to renew the membership fee.

 

UPDATE: Flickr suspended his account after approximately 20,000 uploads. (Tweet link)
