Scenario /Ethical Dilemma:

Posting of Medical Procedures to the internet for entertainment purposes.  Scenario: A plastic surgeon, Dr. A, routinely records his surgeries and often posts them on a Youtube channel.  Patient Jane  is having surgery performed and agrees to the recording being posted after she is reassured that her identity will be masked.  The surgery happens and is posted but it is obvious that her identity was not masked.  Jane wants Dr A to take down the recording.  Dilemma: Dr. A. says that she agreed to have the recording posted and so must decide to take down the video or not.
