You are out in public, walking down a street or driving your car, and you happen to witness an incident that you believe may encompass illegal activities. Naturally, you do what everyone does nowadays; you pull out your mobile device and start recording.
We decided to create this Legal Issues forums page because many video producers are discussing legalities like copyright and fair use, as well as access. There there are encounters with public officials that can get you arrested!
Lately, we've written several stories and blogs in our magazine and on our website about police and other government authorities in the U.S. trying to keep people from video recording their actions.
