Ethics Of Filming Ultimate was created by yeneb
Wanted to generate some conversation regarding Ultiworld’s film coverage. I have some questions that don’t necessarily have right answers but I think it is worth having a discussion about.

Some questions:

Does Ultiworld currently grant film access to filmed teams of those games in which they played? If not, should they?

Most elite club teams (and I imagine elite college teams) film their games. Does this somehow change the conversation?

If film is granted to participating teams, should that include Nationals?

Is Akshat different since he makes his revenue from (I believe) sponsorship and youtube ad dollars?

Who “owns the rights” to filming teams? USAU? Tournament Directors? The teams themselves?

Can and should teams be able to request not to be filmed?

Feel free to answer any or all of these questions.

I think that's appropriate. I believe in the registration process (for tournaments), it should be written somewhere "this tournament will be recorded, so you consent ur image usage". Either online or to keep it private. Specially for youth protection. How can you tell an adult recording the team warming-up, stretching, is someone's father? not just a stranger recording and using these images for other purposes. We had this similar conversation in the Scout Movement.

So today, everyone at an official event, locally, regionally, or something even bigger. Is aware they can be filmed/photographed (by staff/hired photographers) and their image can be used for scout material. Something like that.
