Can a person legally video tape a neighbor's house continuously without the neighbors permission? or is considered video stalking?

Just turn the tables if you suspect something.

In Florida, it is illegal to specifically video tape someone without their permission, unless by law enforcement.

This is not necessarily true in all cases. I doubt that standing in your yard and taping the house across the street would constitute a violation of privacy.

Inviting someone into your home and videotaping them without their knowledge is another thing entirely.

Posting the video online, on the other hand, might be cause for a valid "unreasonable publicity" claim, but that would be civil, not criminal.

I believe what you would be dealing with in the video side is an expectation of privacy. If your windows are not covered and you can be seen thru them you have no expectation of privacy, on the audio sidr of this, it is illegal for any one other than law enforcement with the right warrent to record your voice. Hope this helps.

My neighbor hates my construction so she started taking pictures of us swimming etc. So, I put up video cameras recording every move they make in thier yard. Legal? Yes! She doesn't like when the tables are turned for sure.

Ok the latest,you will not believe this! The nisy neghbore across the street are FACRICATING accusations that they overheard conversations INSIDE my house one day,4 days later the poice come to my door telling me this! I said first of all,I never ever said what they are accusing me of and secondly,I am INSIDE MY House! Can we not say whatever we want without be accused of saying something?These people are very dangerous! The polcie are facilitating there craziness! I thin they are saying that they overherd these false accustions while me being inside and they being on there lawn,It gets better! They have the 9 audio (which is illegal to begin with),video cameras pointed at our house,So they told the police they are sending these dvd's out to get enhanced so they can try and prove there case! I told the police that is great because it will tell that there accusations are FALSE and I want them arrested! They told me that,well when the tapes come back,if they are "garbeled" and nothing is herd on thme ,I canbe still arrested because they wrote a sworn statement to what THEY are lieing about!an anyone believe this! Please send me some input ! Are we in a communistic country? Also,everytime we try and make a complaint agaisnt them,the police say why did you wait a day later? But these people waitng 4 days to make this complaint! Unbelievable! Please send me some input,Thank you.

I am having the same problem in Manchester area. Cops say its ok as long as you are pointing it inside the neighbor's house. Good luck.

To those who have neighbors spying on you, Put insulation up in the windows, they can't hear what they can't hear and insulation will stop them from hearing anything. There are different types of insulation from foam boards to rolls of fiberglass and other products that will do the same. So you will lose your windows that point towards your neighbors house, out of site, out of mind. And if you really want to get back at them really good make a life casting of yourself and buy a set of childrens binoculars from a toystore and set it up in a window or yard in a place they can see it. It doesn't have to be a full sized life cast just as long as you hide it in such a way they can't see that there is no body, and you can buy a kit online pretty cheap to make life casts. Second, You can get your own video survallence system and do the same to them. And Third, get privacy screens put into place so the neighbors can't see you. A privacy fence works well but they aren't very tall (usually 6 feet) So get something that will block all of their view. Fourth, if sound is what they want broadcast Barney with a little out door speaker set to a low volume (as loud as your normal talking voice. And finally just in case your neighbor turns out to be a drug dealer or serial killer get yourself some protection. There are many different types of protection and instructional classes to go with them, ask around and you will find whatever you need. I wish you all good luck and be safe out there.

hi Miss bug from Manchester,how are you making out with your crazy neighbor? We are still dealing with it through my lawyer.The cops are no help at all so we are going to the state police regarding the audio these people have directed at our house.They also have us under 24/7 monitoring with there cameras!Harrasement,intrusion upon our seclusion,eavesdropping,along with many other criminal charges as well as a very good civil case against these weirdos,the local cops and the town for letting these nutts get away with this for over a year now! If anyone has any advice we are welcoming ALL advice that is giving! Thank you ,take care and goog luck and I will post when anything occurs.

so you have to look at your own states rules first. Different states define ONE thing one way and another will define it something else. Can whatever is being taped visible in public? Then yes, your yard can be taped and you have no "expectation of privacy.".......get a privacy fence. And no it is not an intrusion of your privacy. That is why cops don't do anything. Let's use some common sense here...."stars" huge$$$$$$$can't stop papparazi form literally stalking them with cameras in their faces....well why would that be? Hello, folks lets wake up here...you may feel harassed ..but, if that is the case barricade yourself behind walls..because todays video-cameras are EVERYWHERE....when you go to the store you don't think there is a security guard sitting upstairs....leering at you via those black bubbles....you and your kid...with the skimpy clothes, while his mind is running amok....that doesn't seem to bother you? Obviously not because EVERY store has those black bubbles. So get real. Put a surveillance camera that encompasses your house.....if the neighbor is bothered that his yard or house falls into the lens...too bad....get a privacy fence. As far as audio taping....that depends on the state again....some states allow phones being taped by the caller without letting the other know. If you want a business NOT to tape you SAY so and they cannot use it against you as long as you are in a state where you must be told you are being taped.

My neighbor has been videotaping me for over a year. He has called the police on me over 10 times for my dog barking. It was my dog barking 4 of the times and for just cause. Fed Ex, screaming child, etc. I was never cited and he continues to videotape me while I garden, etc. The police say there is nothing illegal about it. I have an attorney working on solving this. I will keep you posted on the chain of events. This type of person is perverted and a complete loser with nothing better to do. You are not alone.

If the video camera is hidden.. NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE.. It is ilegal.
Stores ect are not under this.. And they usually are not hidden.
However a person can put a video camera on their property and point it in any direction over the property and this is totally legal..
However,, Cameras, mic ect pointed into or intentionaly pointed into some one elses property is illegal.(this part of the law is not state by state but regulated by the goverment).
I will look this up. and place it here..
