Comment Problems with this type of law (Score 1) 764

The issues with this type of law are simple but apparently difficult for politicians. I think there should be laws about obtaining access to networks that have any sort of security measure in place. If you are running some type of wep wpa or other type of security then is should be illegal. It would be just as if I had a fence around my house with a lock on the gate and you jumped the fence.

However if you do not have any security because you are to naive to configure it or you just don't care I don't see where you have the right to complain. If you leave your house do you lock your door?? If not your just asking for someone to break in.

On another note I thing that wireless vendors should default the use of some type of security. This might make it slightly more difficult for the end user however would prevent the need for such laws.

I don't think there will ever be a clear cut answer to this issue though. Radio signals are imposable to control.
