Cameras at SIGGRAPH

I’m very excited about the upcoming SIGGRAPH conference. But the emailed “Important Information For SIGGRAPH 2013 Attendees” has me a little non-plussed. Here is ther policy on cameras and recording:

No cameras or recording devices are permitted at SIGGRAPH 2013. Abuse of this policy will result in the loss of the individual’s registration credentials.

Now unless I am mistaken, essentially every SIGGRAPH attendee has a camera and recording device in their pocket at all times. Which means that about 25000 people — statistically 100% of attendees — are in continual violation of this policy.

What happens when they realize this, and take away the registration credentials of everyone? Should we then start our own conference?
