Just butting in with my two cents, but that is a horrible analogy. Wireless signals aren't physical things inside your house, they're broadcast radio waves that travel quite a distance from their origin and enter other peoples homes. If my neighbor was broadcasting beer cans into my house you can bet your sweet ass that I'd grab a couple. It's the responsibility of the access point owner to prevent others from tapping their unprotected signal. If I made a machine that threw pennies in every direction for 200-300 yrds., would the people that picked them up be thieves? Now if I built a fence that encompassed that 200-300 yrd circumference and people broke down the fence to take the pennies, then yes, I would consider that theft."Son if you leave your front door open and sombody comes in and watches your cable, uses your computer and drinks all your beer would you consider that breaking and entering or acceptable behavior?"
