On Sunday, Uber and Lyft fired a driver for allegedly livestreaming hundreds of rides with passengers to an audience of thousands, according to a report by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. It's the latest revelation of how streaming technology from a smartphone can publicize everyday activities - most recently seen in a wave of racist incidents caught on Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.
The Dean of the Law School at the University of Missouri, Lyrissa Lidsky, said this is not, technically, illegal because Missouri is a one party consent state. Only in this case, the people filmed did not know they were on camera.
'The driver's access to the app has been removed while we evaluate his partnership with Uber'. But Twitch'scommunity guidelines expressly prohibit content that violates a person's privacy.
Uber and Lyft have suspended a driver following a report that he livestreamed passengers without their expressed consent. Under Missouri law, passengers would have to prove any intrusion would involve "a secret or private matter that would be highly offensive to a reasonable person", he said.
The incident is stirring up debate over video cameras inside ride-hailing vehicle services. According to the company's help page, drivers are urged to check local regulations to determine if they need to obtain consent from riders to record them. But the Missouri live streams, he said, represent a breach of trust. But, of course, that all changed following the publication of the Post-Dispatch's investigation. One Twitch channel, Uber John's Rodeo, boasts offerings of "live Uber and Lyft rides". However, Gargac told the Post-Dispatch that one of the key differences in his streams compared to those already on the service is that he didn't ask his passengers for permission, believing it resulted in a "fake" experience. Other times, they posted insulting and sexual comments. But the nature of his recordings and the discussions around them that took place on Twitch has drawn criticism. He has also inadvertently revealed the full names of his riders and their homes and neighbourhood on the streaming platform.
Several passengers complained to Uber after learning about Gargac's livestream, they told the Post-Dispatch.
But the paper notes Gargac appeared to contradict that statement in an interview, saying he started driving for Uber and Lyft with the goal of hosting the livestream.
"Stick with my first name, if you can, because privacy concerns", he told the Post-Dispatch.
