Thanks for the replies guys. I guess I was a bit naive about copyright in this form much the way I was about music usage for video at first. Since posting I found some sites that spelled it out pertaining to plays.So when I go to a play or a dance recital (nutcracker etc) is it more common to find that the director of the play and the videographer went through the proper channels, or do they assume it is ok and just do the show and tape it?


“Nobody should be taping these performances for commercial use/profit/politics/distribution, or any other use (a kids play is hardly NEWS worthy so editorial use wouldn’t apply). “

Do you feel this includes a parent or studio hiring someone to shoot the performance for parents to purchase?
