[games_access] Recording the GDC - any regulations?

ok, here's the main info page about recording:


so...there's a deadline of march 13th (!) for permissions (that info 
is on the page and the email address of the person you'll need to 
contact is on there too) and that only 5 minutes of a session can be 
recorded if permission is granted. and no recording of roundtables 

so, sounds like you might not want to go overboard bringing a lot of 
recording equipment because it sounds like you won't be permitted to 
do so and that they will kick you out of the conference for violating 
their regulations. i know that each session is staffed pretty heavily 
(for instance at last year's roundtables there were TWO people 
assigned to our room just to assist that!) so they are probably VERY 
serious about kicking people out.

as far as photos go, i can't find any restrictions for that and i've 
never been asked to not take photos for past gdcs...that doesn't mean 
it's completely fine but i think that the regulations on that are 
less strict. i'll update this when i hear more.
