...you think some Joe Schmoe is attending the MTV awards to make a bootleg?
Most venues say no recording, but look the other way with cell phones because while you might get good video quality, it's most likely mediocre, and the audio is just plain terrible. No one is going to pay for a shaky video with washed out audio.
If I snap a 2min recording at a show it's so I can remember it 15 years from now. Then again I don't go to amphitheaters or gigantic venues, usually I leave my phone in my car because ****ty little dives aren't friendly to fragile things.
