In case you somehow missed it, Kim Kardashian posted a video of Taylor Swift talking to Kanye West about his ‘famous’ lyrics on Snapchat. The Kardashian & Swift Squads have been battling it out on twitter since, but a lot of non famous people have been concerned with the legalities.
Does Taylor have the right to sue Kim and Kanye for posting a video of a private conversation? According to TMZ, the answer is no.
In California, if you record “confidential communication” you’re a part of WITHOUT someone else’s knowledge, it’s a crime. That’s not the case with Taylor. Apparently “confidential communication” does not include a conversation that may be overheard by someone else, and in the video you can hear multiple people speaking up, including producer Rick Rubin, and Taylor seems well aware of their presence. There is no law violated by recording the video, who knows if that means you can legally share it online.
