Apples and oranges. You go into feast days at the Taos Puebla you damn well SHOULD know what the rules are, and woe be unto you if you break them. You start confiscating phones at an arena funded by taxpayers' money and a lot of lawyers are going to get rich. I've stressed here that this is a mess. I saw last night first hand how bad it's gotten. I know this issue is a flash point here (I've participated in the debate before), and an aside I tossed on at the end of my OP has become the dominant subject in the thread rather than the music. I respect artists who seek to control this. I simply do not think it's possible in this era where these gadgets are life itself to so many folks to control it completely without having World War III. The fact that the connected, smartphone generation doesn't think they ought to have to pay for music ... as a lot of you folks who put bread on the table via music know too well ... is a whole lot bigger deal IMO than people acting like asses and being inconsiderate at concerts. And I don't know how you fix that either. Progress is wonderful, ain't it?
