Should people be allowed to video kids in public?

Very impressive. But it ought to be illegal to video a kid without parental permission.


Agreed. Maybe they did get permission before posting it?

The family name of the poster (to YouTube) is the same as the performer’s, so maybe they were a proud parent.


OK. But lots of people around her taking video.

Refer you to @milliefink 's response.

I’m not sure how her response applies to these people in the background:

Who knows? They very well may have asked first. Seems unlikely.



“Excuse me Sir/Madam, I was very impressed by your young performer, would it be okay to post it on my social media platform of choice?”

This is turning into a pointless diversion, you can play by yourself.

I hear the snark, but actually, that’s the correct way to do it.

I just took a photo of a stranger on the street about a week ago, because his t-shirt was pertinent to a conversation we were having here on the BBS. I approached him, told him I loved the t-shirt, and asked if I could take a photo of it to post to a discussion group. I assured him I would not include his face, and showed him the photo after I took it to confirm that he was not identifiable.

And that was regarding a full-grown adult.


As an artist, I see people on the street all the time who would make good subjects for a drawing or painting; I always politely ask before taking pix or even sketching.

And I have had people decline, on the rare occasion; no big deal.


This seems to have taken a personal turn, and I apologize for my role in that.

As to your suggestion above, yeah just like that. It doesn’t seem all that unreasonable. I get that the child is putting on a show, and drawing attention. Still, she’s a minor.
