Submission + - California Passes Wi-Fi Guidance Law

MrNonchalant writes: California's legislature has passed a law requiring wi-fi device manufacturers to include warnings about security. From the article:
From 1 October 2007, manufacturers must place warning labels on all equipment capable of receiving Wi-Fi signals, according to the new state law. These can take the form of box stickers, special notification in setup software, notification during the router setup, or through automatic securing of the connection. One warning sticker must be positioned so that it must be removed by a consumer before the product can be used.
Seems a sensible enough law, as opposed to the alternatives. Thoughts?
