   5-37-510. Unauthorized copying or sale of recordings.

[...]

(b)  It is unlawful for any person for commercial advantage or private financial gain knowingly to:

(1)  Transfer or cause to be transferred any sound recorded on a phonograph record, disc, wire, tape, film, or other article on which sounds are recorded, or any live performance, onto any recording without the consent of the owner; or

(2)  Sell, distribute, circulate, offer for sale, distribution, or circulation, possess for the purpose of sale, distribution, or circulation, cause to be sold, distributed, or circulated, offered for sale, distribution, or circulation, or possessed for sale, distribution, or circulation, any recording on which sounds or a performance have been transferred, knowing it to have been made without the consent of the owner.
[...]
(d)  This section does not apply to any person who transfers or causes to be transferred any such sounds or images:

(6)  Solely for the personal use of the person transferring or causing the transfer if the person transferring or causing the transfer has no intention to evade the provisions or intent of this section, provided that proof of intent shall be an element of the offense.

So apparently, if you accidentally tape something in Arkansas, it's not illegal...but if you intended to, you might have a problem.

United Kingdom:

I've been wondering about this for a long time, and asked a lawyer friend of mine to look into it for me:

Quote
As far as covert recording of shows goes, as far as I know this is not
a criminal offence - the police would therefore be reluctant to get
involved unless there was a serious breach of the peace, as they would
consider this to be a purely civil matter..

Apart from being ejected from the premises, I don't believe there is
any power for venues to seize recording equipment as technically this
would constitute theft on their part ie. an intention to permanently
deprive you of your property. Although they would probably request you
to erase the recorded material in front of them, in order to convince
them not to take legal action against you in the civil courts..

Provided you do this, then no further action should be taken against
you. Then again, you record shows so surreptitiously I can't imagine
you ever getting caught in the first place..

I know theres no articles specified, but this is as good as I've got so far!

OK, wouldn't there be a loop-hole that we do not do this for commercial or private financial gain? I"m no lawyer, but to me there is plenty of proof that I and the majority of us here don't do it for money. Just curious.
