Thanks for your response and follow up Ivan.
Of course I understand mistake happens, and it's generally unavoidable
in a large room with random sitting where the shot is a wide panning
shot across the room. However, in this particular case, whoever was
filming B-roll of the audience chose to zoom in on these 2 or 3 people
where the one in most focus is clearly wearing a sticker. Subsequently,
the video editor deliberately chose to cut in that shot of the audience
in-between continuous footage of the speaker speaking. Like Sydney said,
someone along the process should have caught this.

Personally I asked to video crew to respect the stickers and they are
people who record frequently hackathons and open related events with
similar stickers. But we have a lot of footage during 5 days, some
shoots can show people with the sticker accidentally. If you or someone
detect this deficiency we can remove people who require it and upload
again the videos.
Thanks for the comment,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I’ve asked the local
team who was in charge of working with the video outfit to look into
this. (I know the videos they are working on in production now are
sensitive to this, so perhaps one got by them?)

I am watching one of the few official video talk recording from
this year, and
find it quite disconcerting when during a cutaway
shot on the audience, the video focuses on 2 or 3 people where the
closest person and the point of focus of the camera is clearing
displaying a no photography sticker.
Those stickers exist for a reason, and it need to be respected.
worryingly when even the organisers fail to do so and
publish a video containing someone who didn't want to be photographed.
