Re: [games_access] Recording the GDC - any regulations?Hi,

Thanks for the info! So this covers the A-Arcade well (=events)? Too bad...

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


  http://www.gdconf.com/media/tapingpolicies.htm


  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 whatsoever.


  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.

    Thanks!

      yes, there are a ton of regulations against that actually -- i'm chatting with the gdc folks about the exact restrictions and will post those on the list asap.

        Hi,

        Sander and I are bringing along hardware to record as much from the GDC as possible (audio- and video-recordings as well as photographs). Does anyone know if there are any regulations that prevent us from recording, say, sessions, tutorials, roundtables, the A-Arcade,...?

        Greets,

        Richard
