Is it illegal to record someone without their knowledge?

Report as

You can record somebody without their knowledge. But if you're trying to admit it into a court case as discovery, the judge will rule on the admissibility of the recording. I have recorded family members, friends, etc.I record as for my protection and a receipt of what just signed in on. When aguaintences tell lies, the story doesn't comeback tol anybodym

it depends on where you are and what you are recording

because my dad found a video of a kid videotaping a cop and the cop arrested him and didn't have the rite to because the kid was on public land so the cop got fired i think

As long as you are not making a profit off of what you are recording i believe its perfectly legal. And being on your own property or public property.

I am pretty sure it is illegal. I know someone who got arrested for it during a ugly divorce. Courts alow texts, and voice mail recordings, come in as evidence in cases, but they do not submit or allow unauthorized recordings in as evidence to my knowledge. I believe Its because statements are being made by individuals without consent.
