What are the legal ramifications of video and/or audio taping a conversation or meeting with another person (or persons) without their knowlege or consent? What would be acceptable in a legal/court situation? Do laws differ from state to state? :smack: Stupid question, of course they do, but how much?.
I’m absolutely **not ** talking about the prurient sort of activity here that seems to attract a rather sordid sort of voyeur. I’m talking about anticipating a somewhat questionable confrontation and arming oneself in advance.
IADefinitelyNAL, but my guess would be that something that happened in a public place might be considered to be acceptable. Something private, such as a private office environment might not. How about one’s home - does one have rights there that do not extend to other places? Therefore, by this (probably inaccurate) reasoning, I would assume that a telephone might not be acceptable, because although one end of the conversation occurs in one’s home, the other occurs in another private area.
