More info about recording from Jason at the IGDA:

I think they may have a general no-recording policy, but it is 
unclear to what extent they enforce. Pictures seem fine. I take pics 
all the time and everyone and their brother are posting shots on 
Flikr, blogs, etc.

Last year, we videotaped the QoL Summit, but we had to get 
permission/release from each speaker - and a general green light from 
the GDC folks.

Best bet is to check in with whomever has been corresponding with you 
from the CMP/speaker crew.

So yes check with the gdc people on that website and then get 
permission from all of us. :)
