New Wisconsin Laws!!

Bet you didn't know this:

it is illegal to record a professor without his/her permission

That's according to the Federal dope-convict (or is it convict-dope?) who is STILL teaching at UW-Zero despite his advocacy of election fraud.

Hey, "Criminal Justice Dope":

We'll record whatever we damn well please of what you say in public. That's "in class", moron.

Simply call him on the telephone and record the conversation.

It is COMPLETELY LEGAL within (intrastate) The State Of Wisconsin (interstate is a different story) AND you DO NOT have to notify the jackass you are telephonically communicating with that you are recording the telephone conversation.

Wisconsin falls into the category of "one-party notification" States meaning only ONE party participating in the telephone conversation needs to give permission to record. That one party is you...the initiator of the telephone call.
"...Federal law allows recording of [tele]phone calls and other electronic communications with the consent of at least one party to the call. A majority of the states and territories have adopted wiretapping statutes based on the federal law although most also have extended the law to cover in-person conversations. Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia permit individuals to record conversations to which they are a party WITHOUT informing the other parties that they are doing so. These laws are referred to as "one-party consent" statutes and, as long as you are a party to the conversation, it is legal for you to record it..."...

"...Twelve states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are:
New Hampshire,
and Washington.
Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as "two-party consent" laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping..."...

Also, go ahead and record the jackass in his classroom:


If the person who records the wire, electronic, or oral communication is a party to the conversation or has obtained prior consent from ONE party, he may lawfully record and divulge the contents of the communication, unless he does so for the purpose of committing a criminal or tortious act. Wis. Stat. § 968.31.

Under the statute, consent is NOT required for the taping of a non-electronic communication uttered by a person who does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in that communication. See definition of "oral communication", Wis. Stat. § 968.27..."...

RE: intrastate telephone calls:

"...Only eleven states currently require that all parties consent to the recording. These states are:
* California
* Connecticut
* Florida
* Illinois
* Maryland
* Massachusetts
* Montana
* Nevada
* New Hampshire
* Pennsylvania
* Washington

One-party notification states
All other states (and the District of Columbia) not listed above require only that one party consent.

Of course, if a caller in a one-party state records a conversation with someone in a two-party state, that caller is subject to the stricter of the laws and must have consent from all callers..."...

So...go ahead and record...and nail 'em to the wall.

For once your Wisconsin law does SOMETHING right.

Sort of...

Just don't get comfortable with your government based on ONE half-decent statute.
