Another parent (mother) was constantly taken videos of my ballet class with 6 other students in it. No, none of the other parents gave direct consent for her to video.
Lawyer: Sam, Attorney at Law replied 3 years ago
HelloThank you. I suggest that permission should be given for a video to be taken in a private class. If it is a recital and the director allows photos and videos then everyone is on notice that their child may be on a video. However, in this situation the director of the ballet class should make rules about video and state that they should only be on the person's child unless they get permission from the other parents to take their child. As to it being on the internet, you should write the parent and request it be removed as you did not give permission to have your child taken in the video and it was a private place. If she doesn't then you can discuss a possible lawsuit with a local attorney.I suggest you also bring it to the attention of the ballet director and ask that rules be established.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
