No, your understanding of property rights is flawed.

If I have no door, you are still breaking the law by entering my property without permission. There does not need to be 
anything that states "stay out". By default, you have no right to use the property of another. You need to have 

So the issue is is there a message stating "come in".

Without that express permission you have commited an illegal act. Whether it is also criominal is another matter.


Your analogy is flawed. A wireless network that does not use any
methods of controlling access. It does not have a door. It does not
have a fence. It does not have anything that says "Stay Out". That's
the problem, and that's why you should not go to jail.
