Drive-by Wi-Fi 'thief' heavily fined

Dave

Give me a break

If the propritorer (sp?) of an establishment is offering free wi-fi, then they should limit the range of their wi-fi signal by placement of the AP.

Some important questions:

1. Did she have a web page agreement statement regarding the use of the Re-Union's WiFi network?

2. If no web page agreement statement, then were there signs or some other means of notification regarding the use of the WiFi network?

This is a dangerous precident. Now everyone will require that you purchase product(s) in order to avoid legal ensarements linked to using the "Free" WiFi.

Humph!

If the propritorer of an establishment is offering free wi-fi, then that shouldn't be the concern of the local law enforcement. Sounds like Johnny Law is getting kick backs from someone.

This is a dangerous precident. This is only the beginning of something bad. Humph!
