In today's digital age, there are many concerns regarding recording and an individual’s right to privacy. The library's guide on recording laws provides links to the Texas laws that govern several types of recording including red light cameras, taped telephone conversations, surveillance cameras, as well as links to the federal law on recording conversations. A link to the Reporter's Recording Guide: Texas provides a "plain English" explanation of the Texas recording law. Additional links discuss legal issues surrounding surveillance cameras and your rights. More information is available in titles in the library's collection such as Privacy, security and information management: an overview and the Texas Litigation Guide, both of which discuss these issues.
