Burning Man Says that They Control Your Photos/Videos for the Good of Burning Man

Digital Rights Crusaders at the Electronic Frontier Foundation have taken issue with the conditions that Burning Man puts on the photos and videos shot by participants in the week long event in the Nevada dessert. According to EFF staff attorney, Corynne McSherry, the Burning Man Organization has imposed terms on its ticket holders that go too far. “They’ve appropriated your copyright in advance,” McSherry said in an interview. “By agreeing to the terms and conditions you’ve given them the right to control your photos for the next 70 years.”
