Now that it is "the morning after," however, I realize that a more critical issue is at stake. I appreciated that issue after returning to Rachel King's discussion of Google Glass features for ZDNet last May. The critical sentence from her text is the following:
The video recording feature was basically the star of the outrageous show when Glass was unveiled at Google I/O last year.It goes without saying that video capture of a San Francisco Symphony performance is strongly prohibited, even if the pre-performance announcement (inaudible last night due to the din of the crowd entering the hall) only cites the prohibition of photography. Google Glass is about to push us down a slippery slope where the intellectual property of the performing arts is concerned; and I fear that, once again, the nerds will triumph over the artists.
