Can I protect my classes against unwanted recording?

Technically, no. Legally, yes. Nowadays, any smart phone can record your lecture or class almost anywhere at any time. This is the case for on-campus classes as well as online classes. There is no technical solution to protect you against this. This situation is not generally different in HU Zoom. Only the host has the possibilty to record a meeting with HU Zoom. 

The unauthorized recording and publishing of a class without the permission of all active participants is a violation of copyrights and of personality rights and can be prosecuted.

If you have justified concerns that a record of your online class was misused, please contact HU's legal department.
