Cultural Protectionism: Image Use at Burning Man

Burning Man – aided by volunteers from the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Creative Commons -- spent 2010 updating their terms of use as they relate to photo/media policies, amidst a wave of public attention to the desert event's unorthodox image use rules. They've incorporated fair use, Creative Commons licensing, and human readable language, but still maintain the right to use copyright to take down images in violation of their terms of use. Is this annual desert event a microcosm of creative culture or a copyright clusterf—ck? Anything goes at Burning Man--except when you've got a camera in your hand.
