There are 6 rules which govern a PodCamp. In order for PodCamp Ohio to meet the terms in the PodCamp Foundation License, the following rules must be followed.

  1. All attendees must be treated equally. Everyone is a rock star.
  2. All content created must be released under a Creative Commons license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/
  3. All attendees must be allowed to participate. (subject to limitations of physical space, of course)
  4. All sessions must obey the Law of 2 Feet – if you’re not getting what you want out of the session, you can and should walk out and do something else.
  5. The event must be new-media focused – blogging, podcasting, social networking, video on the net.
  6. The financials of a PodCamp must be fully disclosed in an open ledger, except for any donor/sponsor who wishes to remain anonymous.

Additionally, sessions and events are strongly encouraged to be free to attend to allow as many people to attend as possible.
