Legal Question in Telecomm Law in Virginia

I understand that it may be illegal to make an electronic recording of a telephone conversation without informing the other person that the call may be recorded. If I am calling a company that routinely announces that the call may be recorded "to improve customer service" or for some other reason, am I still legally obliged to inform the person I am speaking with if I also choose to record the conversation?

No, not if you're telephonically speaking from Virginia or from another so-called

one party jurisdiction which allows such recordings in which only the one

doing the recording knows about it and has (obviously) assented to it.
