A new Wyoming law makes it a felony to intentionally and surreptitiously record images of people in an enclosed area where they have an expectation of privacy such as a bathroom, shower, or dressing room. Under the law, those who wish to record dressing rooms for security purposes, for example, must clearly post their intentions or get the consent of the person being viewed.

A similar law approved in Maryland sets out the places in which consumers can expect privacy, including offices, businesses, stores, recreational facilities, restaurants, hotels, theaters, schools, banks, and daycare facilities. The Maryland bill further provides exceptions for covert surveillance conducted expressly to prevent crime.
