Not so sure I'd do that with all the people recording police stops being threatened with jail. They say the audio portion of the recordings violates federal wiretap law.
Time, along with main stream media, rarely gets something like this right.
U.S. Code TITLE 18 PART I CHAPTER 119
§ 2511. Interception and disclosure of wire, oral, or electronic communications prohibited
(d) It shall not be unlawful under this chapter for a person not acting under color of law to intercept a wire, oral, or electronic communication where such person is a party to the communication or where one of the parties to the communication has given prior consent to such interception unless such communication is intercepted for the purpose of committing any criminal or tortious act in violation of the Constitution or laws of the United States or of any State.
IANAL but I have worked in communications for 35 years (15 with Bell) on both wire and RF communications.
I will do more research on this and post when I have time.
Cornell Law School has a great online library.
I will move the rest of my reply to this subject to “Off Topic” in order to not hijack this thread.
