Abstract

Photographs are frequently taken during urological presentations and distributed on social media; they may represent a breach of copyright and, in instances of clinical photographs, a breach of data protection and human rights laws. Presenters and delegates attending conferences should be advised of the conference's copyright policies. Acceptable use of camera phones during scientific presentations should be debated by the scientific community.
