Legal Issues When Recording Conversations, Live Videos and Podcasts

Can you legally monitor (listen in) or record someone else during a telephone call, podcast or live video show? I share my thoughts, and tips, in the above 2 minute video.

My advice for my fellow livestreamers is to always get the express permission of your guest(s) to record and use the podcast or live video conversation. Sure, you can always argue that it was implied that you had permission to record the private or public interview or conversation but written permission (text or email confirmation) is the best way to document consent, especially in a two-party state.

After watching this video, see if you know the answer to the following question: “You are in California and you interview a guest located in New York on your podcast or live video show. Do the laws of a one-party or two-party state apply?”

Who Holds Title to Your Social Media and Digital Accounts?

If you’re doing business online, then I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that you’re making this BIG mistake…

Hopefully, you’re doing business online as a corporation or LLC. That’s a good thing.

But let me ask you this question: Are 100% of your business assets in the name of your corporation or LLC?

Is the title to each of your SOCIAL MEDIA ACCOUNTS and DIGITAL PLATFORMS in the name of your company or, in your individual name?

Because you NEVER want to commingle personal assets with your business, this can be a HUGE problem. In less than three minutes I show you exactly what you need to do.
