A new University of Missouri policy. As the young people would say, this was so not a problem in my day:

2. Students may make audio or video recordings of course activity unless
specifically prohibited by the faculty member.

a. To foster a safe environment for learning, however, the redistribution of audio or video recordings of statements or comments from the course to individuals who are not students in the course is prohibited without the express permission of the faculty member and of any students who
are recorded. Unauthorized distribution of such materials is a violation of academic standards and may violate copyright laws and/or privacy rights. Students found to have violated this policy are subject to discipline in accordance with the provisions of Section 200.020 of the Collected
Rules and Regulations of the University of Missouri pertaining to student conduct matters. Faculty and staff found to have violated this policy are subject to discipline in accordance with applicable University policies.

    this was so not a problem in my day:
    Sorry ,sir. But here in the third world that have been a problem since the 70’s. The casette made easy to record classses and it was done. Students made transcriptions and sold or exchange them.Some proffesors did not like it because some used the trasncriptions to challenge their grades. You said it and showed the transcription. The proffesor denied the fiability and so on.
    Some proffesor forbid it ( still they did, walkman was little enough)other like me expressely allow it.
    The copyright law establish that the rights of the classes belong to the professor(according to labour law , they belonged to the University , under the work for hire doctrine).
    The privacy question have been never raised but for for a few proffesor that studied in Europe
    Sorry for me english , it is not my first language

    “[S]afe environment for learning” gives the game away. I would wager this is a response to something that happened in one of the Squishy Studies departments where class sessions are more like group therapy.
