TAPING AND PHOTOS
Umphrey's McGee Taping and
*Effective May 7, 2004; last updated December 29, 2005*
Umphrey's McGee encourages the taping and trading of our live performances. We feel that each show is unique and want to extend the ability to our fans to recreate the live experience long after the show ends. Tapers can tape from any ticketed seating location in the venue, unless specific taper tickets are available. When taper tickets are available for a particular show, they are released concurrently with general seating tickets. To obtain designated taper tickets, contact the venue's box office. Onstage and/or Stage Lip recording is prohibited at all Umphrey's McGee performances (A recent change to in-ear monitors makes our stage volume very low and onstage tapes wouldn't yield an accurate tape). We ask that you please be considerate of those around you by not obstructing anyone else's view of the performance. Soundboard (matrix) patches will be available at most Umphrey's McGee performances, but be aware that patches are not guaranteed. Please be prepared to tape using audience microphones.
All shows will be available via our UMLive offerings, both immediately after the show in CD format, and via Disclogic (www.disclogic.com) in downloadable format. UMLive CDs and downloads are considered official releases and therefore not freely tradable.
All taping must be for personal use only, which may include trading (via analog or digital tape, CD, or digital file transfer). Recordings may be traded only for an equivalent amount of similar media (cassettes or CDs, pre-recorded or blank). Regardless of any expenses incurred, no money may ever be exchanged as part of a trade; however, stamped, self-addressed envelopes may be included with blank media.
Audience taping at Umphrey's McGee concerts is authorized for non-commercial purposes only. Unauthorized sale, duplication and/or distribution is strictly forbidden. All Umphrey's McGee performances and recordings are the exclusive property of Umphrey's McGee. All rights reserved. The rights to record Umphrey's McGee performances set forth in this policy constitute an express, revocable license. We reserve the right to withdraw our sanction of recording, tape trading and/or non-commercial digital audio file transfers on a case specific basis or in general, as we deem necessary. No waiver of any copyright or trademark right is intended.
Amateur still photography is allowed at Umphrey's McGee shows. You will not, however, be allowed to use any professional quality cameras without prior consent from the band's publicist and appropriate photo pass for that show. Only personal cameras will be allowed into the show. Video taping is strongly forbidden and not permitted under any circumstance. Those caught video taping a show will be asked to relinquish their video tape. Video taping with your still camera is also strongly discouraged.
All photo passes are reserved for official press purposes only, and can be requested by contacting Carrie Lombardi at email@example.com. Requests must be at least three weeks prior to the date of a show.
If you are aware of any person or site in violation of this policy, please inform us firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
