RE: Interesting Ruling Regarding WiFi access

Nice find,
Really make you think. Using free wireless is illegal but not if there is a
message saying public then it is not. Maybe I am not seeing the whole
picture but I believe the burden of notification is on the owner/access
point. This is the case in most states. Using the articles example of a
radar detector, if you travel in to the state of Virginia you will clearly
see the burden of notification in black and white on sign stating they are
illegal. 

I am curious to here other thoughts.

Subject: Interesting Ruling Regarding WiFi access

Given all of the discussion regarding wifi access and the legalities
surrounding it, I found this interesting:

While I find the ruling in this circumstance a bit extreme, I think that it
is good that we are now getting some case law to back up what has been up to
this point mere speculation on what *may* happen in a court.
