I understand that each library has its own rules, though because the technology is relatively new, I don't know if this is on library administration's and policy maker's radar.
I understand that public libraries work very hard to maintain patron privacy, and thus some (many? all?) prohibit video recording/photography. Is streaming or broadcasting a feed considered recording, if the contents are not stored anywhere?
For a bit of context: I've created a prototype of a sound map for a physical space, to give its visitors the ability to find a space or zone they seek in terms of sound. It requires a network of clearly visible microphones to stream the sound of the rooms/zones to the interface side, where people interact with it. No recording happens at any point.
I'd like to propose this to a public library. Would a system like this violate privacy laws?
