With cell phone cameras everywhere, here is one proposal for how to balance freedom to record and the right to privacy
John Bredehoft ponders Striking the balance between freedom and privacy, and the other Empoprise rule
With almost everyone having a cell phone that can record video and audio, we need to work through the issue of balancing privacy right to *not* be recorded and the freedom to record things of interest.
As a society, we haven’t come to terms with that issue.
John has a suggestion:
So let me present my Empoprises Rule Regarding Recording Freedom and Privacy:
I am allowed to record anything that I want.
No one, however, is allowed to record me unless I say that it’s OK.
I think he is serious, but there is also a distinct possibility he may be joking. In any event, I think there may be a few little implementation issues if he ever is around another person who has also adopted his rule.
