Video discussions critiques can fall under a few avenues of right and wrong..
Specifically on Youtube I feel can be critiqued. There is a way to make that video private if the user wants to.
What becomes dicey is when a video is out there that is of a party that does not wish it posted in public but it is.
Lets say for arguements sake that I took a video of someone riding. Technically the video is my property but the person being videod has some rights also and for me to post that video (that is mine) and ask people to critique the rider would be wrong (assuming I never asked the party videoed before I did the posting). The person may not want a critique and maybe they were trying to see what they are doing wrong FOR THEMSELVES then the person should be able to determine WHO critiques them and where.
I would be boiling mad if someone videoed me or my horse with or without my permission and then went and posted it for critique. If I want a critiqque I will ask for it.
