"sniffing the air" is legal

Well actually, if this is sniffing as in intentially capturing an electronic transmission, than this is illegal and 
also criminal.

Interecption + telcomunications - permission = criminal act 
this is true in the US, CA, UK, AU etc

So actually even capturing packets is illegal, proof is difficult though.
