What does One Party Consent Mean?

One party consent means that an individual is able to record conversations that they are a part of without the other person (or persons) consent.  You should still make sure to look at the individual laws for each state as there are a few small differences between them.  A general rule for one party consent states is that if you are part of the conversation you are allowed to record it.
