Is someone allowed to videotape you without your permission? I transfer my child to his father and his wife videotapes the transitions, however, I usually have someone with me and this person does not want to be videotaped. What is the law on this in MD?

You can be videotaped in public, as long as it is not harassing and overly intrusive. However, Maryland has a wiretap law that would apply to the audio portion of any videotape recording. The wiretap law makes it illegal to record a person's voice without their permission.
