FCC Ruling about wireless microphones  (this page is occasionally updated)
Here is a take from the TV industry:

Be aware that you cannot visit a FB page unless you are signed in.
Recording Hacks   (A nice site but PLEASE be aware that since they have NOT invested in the HTTPS certificate (or updated it) modern browsers will report "your connection is not private or secure". You MIGHT try a so-called "private" browsing page in the same or different browser. Sometimes after a few attempts the browser eventually allows you to get there. Confusing and ridiculous: such is the price of greed and false security, and the peeping tom mentality. YMMV.
