Re: "No photography permitted"

I think the difference as they see it is that although quality of smartphones is quite good and improving, it is unlikely that someone will be able to bootleg and entire performance with one.  Wereas someone knowing what they are doing with a DSLR, mirrorless or advanced compact (especially with a long bright lens)very well could bootleg the entire performance.

It would also be a very extreme step to ban smartphones altogether, or very difficult to confront everyone who used one. However as far as something like standup comedy, even a 5 minute smartphone clip on youtube can damage the performers business, so in that case the venue should enforce no recording whatsoever.
