CALEA compliant I'm sure.

But I wonder how they handle DCMA violations and the like or the
occasional caffeine induced hate-mail to whitehouse.gov?

Doesn't Starbucks and McDonalds outsource wifi to AT&T, which probably is
fully CALEA-complaint? That's a good way to manage risk, transfer it to an
external entity.

I must admit, we're probably somewhat of an outlier when we decided to
throw caution (and CALEA) into the wind last year when we opened up
guest wireless for unauthenticated access.

1 year later, we've had no legal issues or abuse and our support calls
have gone down considerably. Yes, I know it's probably just a matter of
time, but in the mean time....we're clearly reaping the benefits.

Does anyone know how the Starbucks and McDonalds of the world manage the
risk associated with their open networks?

Risk?  What risk?
