Below is a section of the Alaska State Statutes that we believe apply to recording phone conversations. This information is not intended as a substitute for legal counsel.
From the Alaska State Code
Alaska Stat. § 42.20.310: It is illegal in Alaska to use an eavesdropping device to hear or record a conversation without the consent of at least one party to that conversation, or to disclose or publish information that one knows, or should know, was illegally obtained. A person who is not a party to a private conversation who receives information from that conversation cannot legally divulge or publish the information. Alaska Stat. § 42.20.300.
The state’s highest court has held that the eavesdropping statute clearly was intended to prohibit third-party interception of communications and is not applicable to a participant in a conversation. Palmer v. Alaska, 604 P.2d 1106 (Alaska 1979). Any violation of the eavesdropping laws is a misdemeanor subject to a fine of up to $1,000 and/or one year in jail, and suppression of the contents in court is the only civil penalty authorized. Alaska Stat. § 42.20.330.
The state hidden camera statute applies only to images that include nudity. A person who views or produces a picture of a nude or partially nude person without consent commits the crime of "indecent viewing or photography." Alaska Stat. § 11.61.123.
It is always best to talk with an attorney if you have questions about the legal implications of recording calls in your state. We hope this information will serve as a general guide, and is not intended to substitute for expert legal counsel.
