When most people think about Surveillance they usually are referring to electronic eavesdropping or video Surveillance. There is much written about legal video Surveillance cameras, but much less about covert video Surveillance and eavesdropping, which is mostly illegal. The courts around the world have been forced to deal the legality of Surveillance and the rights of their citizens.

Therefore, most retail establishment post notices that their facilities are being monitored by video cameras.

Also, many believe that it is completely legal to listen to someone’s private conversations regardless of their expectation of privacy. Many US courts have ruled that just because someone controls or pays for a telephone line that they do not have the right to secretly record all conversations on that line. Many of these ruling have involved the eavesdropping on spouses and children. It is important to point out here that just because a child may be a minor, it does not mean he has no constitutional rights.

You should talk to professional legal counsel before recording or monitoring anyone via video or some type of eavesdropping Surveillance device.
