yesterday morning I filmed on my digital video camera a woman stealing mail in tulsa oklahoma. I began to follow the suspect and informed the police with my cell. As the police arrived I told the police what I´ve seen and that I also filmed the crime. I gave them a copy of the video for evidence and a statement of what I seen and did. Tonight on the 6o´clock news on three channels I seen my videos being played. This was done without my consent. No written or oral video rights release was made from myself. My question on any experts out there is: Is this legal? Don´t I have to give consent. What about payment from the news for usage?
Thanks for any help at all.
