Best Answer

Federal law states that one party of the conversation must know that the conversation is being taped. In other words, I can tape a conversation between me and someone else, but I can't tape a conversation that doesn't involve me.

The recording of a non-electronic conversation under West Virginia law is only legal if the party being recorded had no expectation of the conversation being private.

In other words, recording such conversation would have to be done in a public place.

Is it illegal to tape a person's conversation in Virginia using a concealed recording device on you?

Probably not. Virgina has a "one party" wiretapping law, which covers all oral communication where the parties have some expectation of privacy.If you're one of the parties in the conversation (so that the people you're taping know that you're listening to them), then it's perfectly legal for you to use a concealed recording device and tape the conversation.If you're not a party to the conversation but the speakers don't have a reasonable expectation of privacy (you're sitting at the next table in a public restaurant), then it's probably legal, because the speakers would have a hard time arguing that they had no idea that the conversation they were having in a public place could possibly be overheard or intercepted.If you're not a party to the conversation and the speakers have reasonable cause to think their conversation is private (you planted a bug in someone's living room), then it's illegal.
