FIDE Tournament Rules | IX. TV rights, filming, photographs
IX. TV rights, filming, photographs
TV rights, including video and film rights, belong to the
organiser. But when appointing the organiser FIDE shall conclude an agreement
detailing the specified percentages of money received for the organiser, the
players and FIDE.
Television cameras are permitted in the playing hall with the
approval of the organiser only if they operate noiselessly and are unobtrusive.
Video cameras without any light are permitted in the spectators' area when the
games are in progress. The Chief Arbiter shall ensure the players are not
disturbed or distracted in any way by the presence of TV, video or cameras.
Only authorised reporters, with the express approval of the
organiser, may take photographs in the playing hall. Permission to do so will be
restricted to the first ten minutes of the first round and the first five
minutes each subsequent round, unless the chief arbiter decides otherwise.
