Last Tuesday, November 30th, Big Hit Music, the agency responsible for BTS, reported through a note that fans violated the group’s portrait and copyright rights during the concerts of the “Permission To Dance On Stage” tour in Los Angeles, United States. Taking photos, filming or broadcasting live are considered prohibited practices.
The BTS returned to the stage for the first time since the pandemic Covid-19 on November 28th and still has two more shows scheduled this week in SoFi Stadium. Big Hit Music, in turn, made a point of warning fans about illegal filming in upcoming performances.
According to the label, problems arose with the HD recordings of concerts. That’s because HD content is often officially released by the company. The use of cell phones, for example, is prohibited.
