Too funny, DH. I'm a reporter and have from time to time been asked to stop recording meetings, etc., which I sometimes do for note-taking purposes. It occurs to me a good way to get out of jury duty is to show up and start taking pictures in the courtroom, but then one would have a different problem.
Don't know if the vendor's case for liquidated damages would stand up since what it sounds like is the fee would be assessed for not attending the "free" seminar. If the vendor is giving it away, its damages can't be that great. The free part is when the vendor probably gives its sales pitch. I think they're just trying to scare the guy into listening to their BS.
Still, showing up and recording it sounds like more fun than any of the other options.
