The background: The Reno Gazette Journal this week published a story about the Reno Rodeo's plans to enforce a ban of video cameras and long lens still cameras at this month's event.
Joanna Shapiro with the National Basketball Association said, "The NBA doesn't have a league wide policy on such cameras." Instead, it's up to the teams and venues.
And if the Reno Rodeo wants to compare itself to professional sports, it's on more solid ground with the NFL and not so much with baseball.
SHARK's Steve Hindi said this camera ban is intended to keep activists from documenting shocks and other issues.
said spectators are obligated to whatever policies are on their tickets.
The claim: Professional sports generally ban the use of video cameras and long lens still cameras.
So, is it true that the Reno Rodeo is just following in a Adidas Energy Boost Triple White
If you're predisposed to think the rodeo is hiding animal mistreatment, it's understandable that you would find this new enforcement of a camera ban to be more than coincidental.
Reno's professional sports teams the Reno Aces (baseball) and the Reno Bighorns (basketball) both said they allow video and other cameras and even encourage their use by spectators.
Lawlor Events Center director Ann Larson said camera policy is up to the event organizer and that Lawlor accommodates both camera bans and permission.
Schroeder said there were a number of reasons behind the new enforcement, but a major one was that the Boston bombings inspired a new policy of searching bags, jackets and blankets upon entrance. This meant the Reno Rodeo finally had a good mechanism for enforcing bans on numerous items that it already had policies against, including video cameras but also noisemakers, laser pointers and glass bottles.
He cited Nevada Wolf Pack basketball policy: "Under NCAA and University of Nevada policies, there is no photography or videography of the game allowed. Professional cameras, including those with detachable or interchangeable lenses, or SLR or digital SLR cameras are not allowed inside Lawlor Events Center."
The impetus for this column comes from Reno reader Mark Bacon.
"There's a rights issue," he said in a quote only partially used in Wednesday's original story. "We put on a great event, but we're in charge of the rights of the images. We've had people come in and try to sell the images without securing rights. It's the same as if you go to an NFL game, an NBA game, a Major League Baseball game."

Many ban it, as with: "Professional camera equipment and/or audio/video recorders may not be brought into the arena without the express written consent of the Sacramento Kings."
Some don't mind, such as the Utah Jazz: "All cameras and recorders are allowed during Jazz games."
What's billed as the world's largest rodeo event has this policy: "Cheyenne Frontier Days will allow photography, videotaping and digital image capture of the rodeo for private and personal use Wolf Pack assistant athletic director Chad Hartley said, "We do not allow professional digital cameras with detachable lenses in any of our sports venues for games. Video cameras fall under the same thing."
The National Football League's Clare Graff told Fact Checker: "We do not allow videotaping of games with camcorders or the use of camera lenses longer than 6 inches."
The Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, which sanctions the Reno Rodeo, does not have a camera policy that Fact Checker could find on its site, and representatives didn't respond by deadline. The Professional Bull Riders organization bans video cameras and detachable lenses.
and never been prohibited from entering."

Rodeo spokesman Steve Schroeder said this is not the case.
Taking pictures of yourself or your friends in the stands with your smartphone or point and click camera is fine, he said.
"Don't take pictures of the event and post them on the Internet or try to sell them," Schroeder was quoted in the story.
He wrote, "A friend of mine, a baseball fan and amateur photographer, has taken his digital SLR with zoom lens into at least 10 Major League Baseball parks from Los Angeles and San Francisco to New York and Boston Adidas High Top Trainers Foot Locker
Are sports camera bans common
The back of Reno Rodeo tickets says, "Holder agrees by use of this ticket not to transmit or aid in transmitting any description, account, picture or reproduction of the game, performance, exhibition or event for which this ticket was issued."
"You'll see policies on the back of tickets saying things like you can take photographs of the action but you can't post them online," she said. "Policies like that have been upheld by the courts, and (camera bans) are the policy of many sporting organizations."
For the legal aspects of this debate, Fact Checker contacted New Media Rights, a nonprofit that provides legal services for Internet users and creators.
An animal advocacy group called Showing Animals Respect Kindness took video at last year's event that showed horses being shocked, something the Reno Rodeo has a policy banning.
Major League Baseball leaves it up to the teams and venues. Typical is the San Francisco Giants policy: "Cameras and video equipment are allowed in AT Park." The exception is: don't get in people's way.
