AltConf 2015 Banned From Streaming Video

If you live in the San Fransisco area and want to watch WWDC live but couldn't get tickets, AltConf would be the next best thing. It's a meet up where people who didn't get a ticket to WWDC could hang out and watch the keynote live. However, this year, Apple has notified AltConf to not stream video as it can affect Apple's potential revenue and take away exclusive control of content.
AltConf's streaming of Apple content "would strip Apple of exclusive control over one of the most anticipated events of the year, and could deprive Apple of potential revenue generated from its exclusive rights." Thus, AltConf must "refrain from publicly streaming or showing any WWDC content. Apple further demands that AltConf and each of its organizers refrain from reproducing or distributing any WWDC content belonging to Apple, in any manner."
