Is It Legal to Record Video Calls?

Leslie Whitten

I recently blogged about the potential issues with video platforms, like Zoom.  Many businesses are continuing to work in these platforms and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.  Law360 recently published an article about the legal ramifications of recording these calls.  In it, the article explains that each state has its own laws about recording someone without their knowledge and how to ensure that all parties are aware of, and consent to, the call being recorded. 

If you are in a meeting with people in multiple states, you will need to be aware of the law in those states before you consider recording that call without explicit permission.  By the way, under S.C. Code §17-30-20, it is a felony in South Carolina to record a conversation without the permission of at least one party.
