Apple was recently awarded a patent that would give certain concert venues a huge advantage over stopping people who choose to record footage there.
The new patent essentially allows for Apple to use infrared signals to send messages into your phone, telling it to disable video recording. This may be a reaction to most artists taking fairly extreme measures at concerts to ensure there are no videos taken during their performances. Dave Chappelle and Alicia Keys have employed sealable “gadget bags” for attendees of their shows to put their electronics into at the beginning of a show, and they can only be retrieved at the end.
What do you think of this tech? Good idea? Bad idea? Other? Sound off in the comments!
