RminusQ: Temescal: Why don't you like it? I'm genuinely curious.1. I have no interest in... laws... I intend to make .... students... get my... forbidden... knowledge...
AmbassadorBooze: Anything done by government employees should be viewable by the public.
Owangotang: For f*ck sake notes are just a transcript of a lecture, albeit a transcript that is very likely not as thorough as a recording. Will students have to return their notes at the end of class to be burned to ash?The whole "don't record my lectures, bro" thing just makes teachers and professors seem anachronistic and petty. It reminds me quite a bit of the RIAA and MPAA. The students, and I'm speaking about college kids here, are going into massive debt just to be able to be gifted with a your wisdom and expertise but...OHHHHH...I got it. Ha, this is about not wanting to switch your class around next semester when a former students gives/sells the recordings to a current student. Lame, yet more understandable than the "intellectual property" nonsense.Get the f*ck over yourselves.
Theaetetus: endosymbiont: FWIW, some states will have applicable wiretapping laws. While the practical consequences (none) may render the point moot, it's one part of the equation. Here in Massachusetts, Ch. 272, s. 99, makes it a crime to record someone talking in a classroom (teacher or other student) if some conditions aren't met (like knowledge and consent, I think).Just to clarify in case anyone misunderstands, MGL 272 §99 is the general wiretapping law here, which may be read on recording in a classroom, but isn't specific to it. Also, it's not sure that it would apply, since it's likely that recording a lecture would not be done "secretly", which is required under the statute.
ArkAngel: Any records made without the knowledge and permission of the teacher shall become the property of the teacher.I don't see how this is legal. Any record made is the property of the person who made it, i.e. the student. A contract between the teachers and the school can't affect the student's IP
