+ - Burning Man responds to EFF's criticism of policy 1

Submitted by Briden
Briden (1003105) writes "Earlier this week, slashdot covered the EFF's criticism of the Burning Man Photo Policy. Burning Man has now responded on their own blog:

"In fact, there are but two essential reasons we maintain these increased controls on behalf of our community: to protect our participants so that images that violate their privacy are not displayed, and to prevent companies from using Burning Man to sell products."

"We don't remove images from pages just because they criticize us (I've never been involved in taking down an image from an editorial blog criticizing Burning Man, and it's certainly not because there haven't been any!). We're also not at all interested preventing participants from sharing their personal imagery or impressions of the event on third party sharing sites in a noncommercial manner, so long as they observe the concerns about privacy and commercialism. We're delighted to see people sharing videos, stories, and pictures on our official Facebook page, and we know that it, along with Flickr, YouTube, Vimeo, etc. are representative of the way many of us share personal imagery in the digital age.""

  • These rules are probably in place because after people come down from their drug trips they are horrified to see naked pictures of themselves on the internet. I am sure the naked woman dancing at burning man on its wikipedia.org page probably isn't thrilled to have that honour.

ASHes to ASHes, DOS to DOS.
