EAA realizes that the taking and making of Recordings (of any nature, to include moving and still images, sound etc. regardless of the means of capture or storage used - e.g. film, digital, video, or other format /media) allows attendees to capture the excitement and color of AirVenture, and provide them with a personal record of their experience at the event. To that end, EAA permits those people attending AirVenture to make such Recordings for their personal enjoyment only.
As the creator and producer of AirVenture, EAA has a great investment in the intellectual property rights to the event. EAA takes this investment seriously, and has an obligation to protect it on behalf of its membership - not only during the event but on a continuing, perpetual basis. EAA retains all worldwide rights to AirVenture and to any Recordings or Images taken at or of AirVenture, either on or off EAA grounds.
