Individual Privacy Concerns with a Live Stream

posted in: Live Streaming | 0

Live streaming events such as sports games can be a great way to experience the excitement and energy of the event even if you can’t be there in person. However, it’s important to be aware of the legal responsibilities and rights of individuals who may appear on the live stream. In Australia, recording and broadcasting a person’s image or voice without their consent is considered a violation of their privacy. As an individual, it’s important to take necessary steps to ensure that you are not captured on the live stream if you do not want to be. Additionally, it’s important for live streaming companies to provide an area that is not being captured by the cameras for individuals who do not want to be on the live stream and to make sure that individuals are aware of this option.
