i wouldn't bother asking the professor nuthin cuz it's much easier to beg forgiveness then to ask permission

Gosh, MrHerring, being a professor, I have to disagree with you on this one. If someone were to ask for permission in advance, and had good reason for wanting to tape my lecture, I wouldn't have any problem with it. But if someone were to do something like that behind my back, I'd have big problems with it.

I don't think it's really in anyone's best interest to teach students to be "sneaky." Going to college is partially about learning to be an adult, and how to live and get along in the adult world. As a video instructor, I would be hard pressed to teach my video students to tape someone without their knowledge...it's simply not professional, or legal. As a video producer, it is standard operating procedure to get a release form from anyone you are videotaping, outside of your average, "people in public" type of thing. If they are speaking, a release form is required.

Furthermore, although I appreciate the fact that you were very complete in repsponding to the questions asked, I get the sense that you're more interested in getting his or her business, rather than giving the best all around advice for the questions asked. It is my understanding that soliciting business on the Fool Discussion boards is a "no, no."

Respectfully,
Caat
