Technology Outstrips Wiretapping Law

There's an interesting development occurring in the wiretapping arena. There's been a big flap about dialing into an existing conference call as wiretapping.

But is it really wiretapping, asks Becky Dale in the Virginia Lawyer's Weekly?

While it may not be under the strict definition of the rules, it won't take courts long to make it fit. If you're listening in on a conversation where the callers expect it to be private, it sounds like wiretapping to me, even if the law hasn't yet caught up with the technology.

Perhaps it's time to watch where your fingers are dialing.
