First, there’s the obligatory legal reason of copyright infringement.
Second, and dearer to all of our hearts, is the competitive edge that can be lost. Most bands don’t get the chance to see each other perform much, so they don’t know how hard to work or if drill should be changed. Keeping it this way is helpful for our hardworking students.
Third, there may be some judges out there who might preview shows if they can be found online. This can seriously impact their scoring of us due to preconceived ideas. I don’t think this probably happens, but why take the risk?
This “rule” of keeping video from leaking to the general public is very important to our Directors. They are counting on us to keep it this way. Thank you!
