    recorded conversations, also used as samples in musical compositions

    Can I legally record personal conversations & upload them leaving speakers anonymous(voice may be recognised)?
    I would like to record personal conversations to shed light on a few wrong doings. I understand that legally I don't need consent, but I would need consent to show it to a third party.

    I'm looking for loopholes on this... I'd like to upload a conversation online publicly; what if i left the names of the people speaking anonymous? I'm more interested in what/who they're talking ABOUT. The voices might, however, be recognised by the people being spoken about.

    Can I use snippets of the conversation/words spoken for something else, for example, as a sample in a track? I.e. if i tried to use it for art?

    In many states, you are not allowed to record the other party without their permission.
