Who are Nancy & The Meerkats?
Nancy & The Meerkats are a super cool band that love to make music!
They also love to help people learn all about copyright (with the help of their manager – Big Joe).
Watch this video about filming a concert on your phone…
After that you should understand more about the rules around recording live music at a concert.
Can I take photos and video at a concert?
No, this is infringing on the copyright of the performance which is not allowed.
But I saw lots of people taking photos and videos on their phones at the last concert I went to?
Well even though it isn’t allowed people do still do it.
Performers don’t usually have a problem with it as people just use the footage to remind themselves of the show and show their friends.
However the performer could ask for all those videos and photos to be destroyed if they wanted.
I saw somebody post a video of a concert they went to online, is that allowed?
No, just like we said before your not allowed to video and you’re especially not allowed to upload the video online.
This is copyright Infringement.
