A twenty year old man was arrested for theft of services outside a coffee shop. What was he stealing? Wireless Internet Access. It’s really easy with today’s laptops and WiFi finders to find signals, and lots of restaurants are offering it to customers as part of their meal. This person was driving up, never even coming in to the building, and mooching off of an Internet connection.
Will he be able to be prosecuted, it has yet to be seen. If you have wireless Internet in your house, be sure to secure it unless you like the idea of sharing it with people in your neighborhood.
