The picture shows off a “Google Glass is banned on these premises” sign, pasted clear as day at a Sacramento based Micky D’s.

Already users wearing Google Glass eyewear have been told they are banned from strip clubs, cinemas and casinos because their owners don’t want them filming there.
In West Virginia legislators tried to make it illegal to use the gadget while driving - and plan to launch another legal attack before it becomes widely available next year.

I always thought that this "right to privacy" is not applicable in public accessible places because there is no "expectation of privacy"? same reason why we are legally allowed to film cops.

Strip clubs, cinemas, casinos and McDonalds are not public places.

Pretty sure buildings that are owned by private entities are considered private land.

i should have said public accessible places. parking lots are privately owned but you can film in there, that's just one of many examples.

It might be public access, but as private property, they do have the right to restrict what goes on in their buildings.

Good. That said, the issue isn't really about right to record. It's the fact that they can SECRETLY record, with no obvious recording device or warning. And as far as driving... seriously, that should be an OBVIOUS no-no. I mean in most places it's illegal to even make a phone call with a bluetooth headset! Now imagine someone DRIVING with one eye covered by a display screen!

isn't there any led indicator that illuminates when you are recording? old nokia phones do that.

Well, banning it at strip clubs is only logical. Banning it at movie theaters is a bit silly; who watches those awful bootlegged movies these days? Banning it while driving is probably for the best; it could provide some kind of HUD while driving, but I don't trust idiots to only use it for that. Banning this at mcdonalds, however, is pretty silly; what have they got that they don't want filmed.

Technically, camcorders and cameras are banned at movie theaters, so it makes sense that the ban would be expanded to these at well.

Most businesses don't want their customers recording things at their business without their permission. Also, technically, if you're filming a person, you need to have their permission to be filmed before you can film them, based on a recent project I did with my psychology class. With Google glass though, you can get away with just saying "I'm filming everything" when you're actually trying to film a particular person. It becomes a huge gray area.

i totally agree, it's logical to ban it in some business establishments like cinemas, strip clubs, etc. but in a restaurant? what is there to hide? crappy foods?
