If you are on public land go for it, though there are no guarantees that you won't get hassled by someone calling police. You may be in the right, but that won't stop you from being put through the wringer while police "investigate".

So it is not illegal to film in public as long as you are not doing any illegal acts. What is legal, what is policy, and what is feelings are 3 different things. ... 20entering.

Now filming with a dash cam, is that legal? What if you record some kids crossing a stoplight on an intersection? Drive into a private underground parking? In your condo parking spot? Do you need consent from everyone in your footage?

Good article, brings up some scary scenarios. People need to realize that you're free to exercise your rights, but excising your rights isn't free.

Interestingly my employer prohibits recording of any kind on company property, the intention is to prevent IP theft inside but what about dash cams in the car? Technically a policy violation just not enforced. Reminds me of an incident where a coworker recorded harassment and received much harsher discipline than the harasser.

It's 2020; I'm pretty sure a bunch of cameras have already captured my image today without my permission or consent.

I really don't care as long as someone isn't being creepy about it.

I try to avoid. I wouldn't like my kid's photographs on the internet.
