Why where they allowed to use their full name? "Get Fit" Workout by Latreal Mitchell

I was going through the rules and noticed that contestants where not allowed to user their full names in the video. Why was this the only video allowed to do so? "Get Fit" Workout by Latreal Mitchell her name is both in the video and in the title.

    The name of the organization that submitted it was fitness bunch. So they aren't like Martha O'Brian who's company name is a persons name and therefore is unavoidable but put it in.

    Hi Paul,

    Several videos that include full names were deemed eligible.

    The rules state that "The Video should not include any personal identification information about those in the Video (e.g., full name, address, social security number, birth date, etc.)." The use of "should not" instead of "must not" is important. The purpose is to discourage disclosure of personal information but not automatically disqualify videos that do so. This wording gave us the discretion to allow videos that included full names. We wanted to be more inclusive and the rule was applied consistently.

    Best,
    Peter
