A few weeks ago I responded to the list regarding clearing no risk
language data gathering work by students with the Human Subjects Comm.
at the U of Minnesota. I submitted a blanket class protocol to
cover all of the classes that I teach in which I ask students to record
data for their projects. This protocol will be good for a while. It
received quick approval. This is a good solution to this recurring problem,
and it's worth proposing it to your own Human Subject Committee admini-
strator.

I am fascinated to learn that linguists are being hassled for tape
recording subjects without elaborate permission. Researchers in
computer vision routinely take pictures of people (moving or still)
without permission from anyone except the subject, and that only
verbal. I have NEVER heard of anyone being hassled by human subjects
committees unless they were doing something that involved real work by
the subjects, e.g. psychophysical experiments on stereo perception.
So what is the difference between a sound recording and a picture
recording?
