The reason the article highlights streaming video live to a server somewhere is for the following reason (which they fail to mention, or at least explain it's importance in regards to what the cops can do with any recordings):
Cops can confiscate get any footage from phones nearby or in building because "a crime has occured" and they think you may "delete the evidence".
I liked this quote:
"No matter how many courts claim that videotaping police is legal, no matter how many officials instruct the cops under them that people recording them aren't breaking the law, they will only care once those rulings and instructions come backed with punishments for failing to comply, and not a minute before."

What happens if you are trying to record the police but catch someone else doing something criminal. Can your videotape be used as evidence against that person since I assume that you are streaming it and allowing it to be seen by everyone?
Can the police subpoena the recording for evidence?
