With the press of a button JIC, or Just In Case, which is an iPhone case can record any phone conversation. It comes equipped with a built-in microphone, a speaker for playback, and a microSD card for storing conversations.While the case might be useful for journalists, spies, and anyone else in dire need of a stored conversation, it also could lead to illegal recordings in 12 states.
Federal law allows for “one-party consent,” which essentially means that so long as the recorder of the call is also a participant in it, the recording is legal. The other people on the phone conversation do not need to agree or even know they’re being recorded for it to be considered legal. However, the 12 states that have amended that law turned it into an “all-party consent,” which means all the call participants must agree to being recorded prior to the recording’s start. Those states include California, Illinois, Florida, and Michigan, among others.JIC cases are only part of an Indiegogo campaign as of now and have an estimated delivery date of this upcoming May.
