Should Illegally Recorded Video Be Admissible In Xbox Modding Case?
from the rules-of-evidence dept
Pickle Monger points us to the latest bit of info to come out of the upcoming trial of a guy accused of violating the DMCA by modding Xboxes. Apparently, the defense is arguing that videos taken by an investigator for the ESA should not be used, because they violated California privacy laws (though, not necessarily wiretapping laws, since there was apparently no audio). The government is apparently saying it doesn't matter -- and even if the video was recorded illegally, it's still admissible.
