    Not many people know the law governing taking pictures out in public. You are legally allowed to take anyone's picture out in public in the US without their consent. Germany on the other hand has a law making it so you aren't allowed to take pictures in public of people. Here is the laws in US about taking pictures in public.

    She was the victim of a mugging.
    Unsurprising really when your sporting upwards of $1000 of head gear.
    imo Googleglass should have some sort of inbuilt GPS tracking system that can not be disabled so that they can always be found.
    would also be nice to be able to give anyone who is not the authorised user subliminal messages to return them, but that is just wishfull thinking

    Which is odd, considering Google is the best tech employer one could ever have a wet dream in hopes of working for.

    Maybe that's why we call it gas. Gasoline, Propane Gas, Diesel, 2 out of 3 products can be called "Gas" whereas in a petrol station only 1 out of 3 products can be called petrol.

    "They started rolling their eyes at me and they tried to shield themselves from the Glass because they thought it was recording them, which it wasn't," Slocum told The Chronicle in an interview Tuesday. "Out of the blue, one of the girls turned around and completely flipped me off. At that point, I was like, 'Holy crap, I'm the target of their anger and hatred.' "

    Slocum said that while she was not recording footage initially, she turned on the camera after she felt threatened.

    Taken from the sfgate web...thing.

    Did not have it on initially , just showed it to friends (hey look at the new toy I got) other patrons saw it and started to make an issue of it , THEN she turned it on after things started to go bad (think police "on body" camera ) THEN got mugged .

    There is currently a massive "anti techie backlash" going on in S.F. over rent prices going up , Food prices going up($10 toast at some foo foo places) , old old businesses going out of business after ...xxx number of years , Gentrification of old SF neighborhoods , "less fortunate residents being pushed out by rising prices , "Google buses" etc and this is just one more incident going along with this.

    SF wants money that the techies are bringing in and spend but ...it doesn't want the techies... is how I see it.

    I am sure Texas will be happy to take the money .

    TO the people asking about filming and picture rights on private property ...

    Taken from the ACLU site ...

    When you are on private property, the property owner may set rules about the taking of photographs. If you disobey the property owner's rules, they can order you off their property (and have you arrested for trespassing if you do not comply).

    So it is up to the OWNER to set the rules , not the patrons ...to boil it down.

    There's nothing wrong with Google Glass. If you're worried about being recorded, you should've gotten up in arms before CCTV became a thing in most stores and streets. Or maybe before smart phones became so popular.

    This story is about a bunch of hateful technophobes viciously assaulting a woman who had done nothing wrong whatsoever. Why is the thread only talking about how Google Glass is terrible, rather than the actual issue: hateful, ignorant fools taking their anger out on someone who doesn't deserve it?
    CCTV isnt used in bathrooms and showers

    No it wouldn't since it's still public. A mall is considered private but is protected under taking pictures in public. The person who owns the establishment has the right to deny you service though if they don't like it.

    It's privately owned property that is publicly accessible wherein one has no reasonable expectation of privacy.

    Well they have busses, that cut off public transportation stops and prevent people from using it to get their workes to their jobs, they get fined 1 buck every time they do it, where you or I would get 250+ fine.
    The rent has gone up, people are being evicted yadda yadda...
    some of the younger company CEOs like to talk about how the non tech people in SF are trash and must be removed, just a lot of spoiled 20 something brat drama.

    Everything has been gentrified, everything is more expensive, to the point of being stupid, so people are mad. Everyone who was like Middle ground in earning that could scrape buy is either now back to living with roomies or out in oakland, so it's seen as pushing everyone out to create a new Silicon valley nexus.

    If I went to a pub in somewhere like Tower Hamlets, and started filming the locals on the latest expensive high-tech gadget, it would be more of a surprise if I didn't get robbed.

    Whilst I dont agree with attacking someone, I can sympathise with the sentiment. Googleglass is just an incredibly annoying concept, personally I will refuse to talk to anyone wearing it. But attacking them is going a bit too far!
    I don't get it. Why do you refuse to talk to someone wearing these?

    Slocum reportedly has video of her assailant on her Google Glass and has turned it over to police.
    At least they work :P

    But, yeah. Google should have stopped halfway when brainstorming features of these glasses. Remove the recording ability, and I'd embrace them. As is, though, it is just too much.

    Of course, attacking someone just for wearing them is fucking moronic, so I hope charges are pressed.
    If you add me on Steam, Skype or whatever program/client I share my info for, please write something to identify you in the "Dude/gal wants to join your club"-message. Just so I know that an actual human is on the other end :P

    Yeah because talking to people and telling them to delete it, is no option.

    Friendly advise right here, never visit public places or you have to knock down too much people.

    You're punch worthy for walking into a bathroom with a video recorder running too in my book.

    I'm surprised you think 6 people posting before you is "so many people". Not to mention how non of them said it was ok.

    But the pivately owned property already has rules such as not using cell phones, taking pictures etc.. Would not that guarentee expectation of privacy?
