Save Your Conversation

ASL Video – Approx 3:54 Minutes Long

Grant Laird Jr talked about if you do save your conversation with your friends thru AOL Instant Messenger or do you save your conversation thru videophone with VRS or friends?

Bascially he asked couple deaf lawyers about it few years ago and it raised some interesting discussion. Right now, there’s really no law to prevent anybody to record the conversation however there’s few states that it is illegal to record conversations thru audio such as phone in general (Specifically hearing folks) — does it apply to deaf community too?

Grant W Laird Jr discussed about putting images, videos, and text on your blog site, website and others. He saw couple issues that happen to someone recently. They got upset that other people copied their videos online then make money out of it elsewhere.

They decided to remove it from youtube and others. No matter what they decide, this information is more likely already copied from other people or even thru Google or Yahoo.

Yes, it is very unfortunately and may require great time to keep it under control. Internet is not perfect and easy to take advantage regardless.

Please think twice before you put images, videos, and texts on website. As long as you know what you are doing, it should be okay.
