Camera are everywhere

Commerce, GA

I have read so many stories lately of people that were renting a house or apartment and they had had cameras planted in their homes, by voyeurs. That is something to think about, boyfriends spying on girlfriends and vise versa. Filming sex acts and showing their friends. Home owner were not safe either. It is illegal in many states, you DO NOT have to put up with it.

In addition, Georgia has a special provision regarding the use of a hidden video camera. The law makes it a crime to use a device to "observe, photograph, or record the activities of another which occur in any private place and out of the public view" unless the person making the recording gets the consent of all the persons observed. Ga. Code 16-11-62(2)(link is to the entire code; you need to click through to Title 16, Chapter 11, Article 3, Part I, and then choose the specific provision).

Does this mean that a homeowner has committed a crime if he/she installs a motion-activated camera in a mountain home to detect if someone has broken into his/her cottage and records someone breaking into the house and stealing things? It's out of public view, right?

I had read that you have to have a sign in public view, warning that they are being video taped. not sure where I read it, I just remember reading that.

I have seen a couple of movies covering this topic as well, it must be a big problem with all the article and movies about it now, I would say a lot of victims.
