    If they ask you personal questions and they do not warn you that you will be on tv or in a presentation then yes it is.

    Should people who have security systems with video in their homes ask for permission as well in order to avoid a strike against someone's civil right? It is logical that in public places security measures are a given.

    I'm sure there are some variations from state to state, but generally speaking, if you are in public, you have reasonable expectation of privacy when it comes to being video'd.

    There are some exceptions relating to the nature of some of the video (i.e. up skirts/down blouses, kids, etc.) but that's where it really varies from state to state.

    No because when your in someone elses home you dont have a reasonable expectation of privacy unless you are using their toilet.

    However, in most states it is illegal to record audio without consent.
