IMoot recordings

Hi all

I hope you've been enjoying iMoot 2014.

After iMoot last year, the wonderful team at Blindside Networks (BSN) worked for a couple of months to convert all the BBB sessions into video files that were then released by Pukunui on YouTube. BSN added a lot of code to BBB that has meant this year the recordings are generated automatically and usually available within an hour after a session has finished.

While this is obviously a great advantage if you have missed a session and want to watch it later, it also means that you can save the videos. This raises several issues:

1. The screencast videos have been provided from Blindside Networks to Pukunui as part of the sponsorhip arrangement of iMoot and thus remain the property of Pukunui;

2. The videos are trimmed and then released on YouTube at a later date, The delay is so that iMoot attendees get the first opportunity to watch any recordings;

3.The videos are released under a CC BY-NC-ND license (unless requested otherwise). If you wish to use them for purposes not covered under that license then you will need to seek the permission of Pukunui and the Authors/Presenters;

4. In some instances presenters have requested that the recordings not be released publicly but remain within the IMoot community only. This may be for a variety of reasons, but we wish to respect the Presenters requests.

The iMoot team ask that all attendees be mindful of these points when dealing with the recordings.
