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'm pretty sure you don't need permission to film anyone in public, including cops, at least in america.

Depends on what you consider public. If you are standing on a public road filming (or photographing) a nearby farm or food processing facility, that is illegal in many (most?) farm states.

As for police, that was becoming illegal in many jurisdictions in many parts of the country until the supreme court put a stop to that. It is most assuredly legal to film police. Though if you do it too obviously your phone/whatever is highly likely to be confiscated as 'evidence'.

I believe there's a difference between a public employee and a private worker in terms of the rights they have.

I believe everyone should be able to record whatever they want with their devices. Furthermore, I believe that property owners should be able to control what happens or does not happen on their privately owned property. wink.gif

Well, if you're going to ban google glass because it has a crappy camera in it, why not ban all cell phones as well? They really shouldn't care because with modern piracy, no one actually watches cam versions of movies, .

Banning this at mcdonalds, however, is pretty silly; what have they got that they don't want filmed.

Most people are uncomfortable being filmed during their normal lives.... I'd be pissed if some idiot was taping with google glass near me. It's obvious when it's in use.

Now imagine someone DRIVING with one eye covered by a display screen!

Driving with Glass should be fine. Some soldiers have similar displays below their eyes and they go into combat with them on. I believe apache gunners have a HUD that completely covers their right eye as well.

Plus, cars have heads up displays, this should be no different. Certainly safer than looking down at a cell phone.

Next up it will be banned at swimming pools, gyms, spas, schools, government buildings, and more.
While I am not a huge advocate of online privacy, its a bit more concerning when anyone looking at you could be secretly recording you. Yes I know cell phones can record too, but its just making things easier. It would take VERY little extra design and money to change the aluminum frame to a clear polycarbonate, and then implement two LEDs that light up the entire frame, making it obvious to everyone that youre recording. And while it could be bypassed, I dont see any other negatives to my approach.

You can not film people on private property, or from private property without the consent of the property owner. You can however stand in a public park, building, sidewalk or road and film whoever you want so long as they are on public property too.

McDonalds, while available to the public, is not a public building. It is a private building, just like this forum is private and free speech laws do not technically exist as per why we are not allowed to cuss, talk politics or racial matters. You're still entitled to your rights, but while on private property those rights are limited to the what the owner deems appropriate for his property.

Filming cops also stands as something different since you keep bringing it up. Being able to film cops is for OUR own protection. To make sure a cop doesn't do something illegal himself like violating a citizens rights or to arrest a citizen for no reason whatsoever. And still are only allowed to do so in public areas. You can't just walk into a police officers back yard and start filming him, for no reason other than him being a cop.

Google Goggles is going to push a lot of limits it seems. I can't think of the number of times I've had to get release forms for people in obviously public places just to cover the interests of a production. Sure this isn't for profit but still you are being caught on camera. And most people DO NOT like to be on camera I've found.
