Recording Campus Events


Here is a disturbing story involving the University of Wisconsin at LaCrosse, where there was a minor altercation over video recording of a debate between candidates for the House.

It seems to me that colleges and universities ought to have a policy of permitting audio and video recording at campus events of this kind, provided that those who do so not obstruct others in the audience. If they would make a point of announcing beforehand that recording is permitted, incidents like this might be avoided.
