Man Arrested for Using Open Wireless Network

Erv Walter Re:terms of service. (1443 comments)

The quote from the article was taken out of context and that makes it unclear what they are labeling as theft. If you read the article, it become clear that the statement is saying that it is "theft" if a homeowner intentionally sets up an open WiFi so that people in the area can share his broadband connection. The homeowner is the "thief" because he is likely violating his/her TOS.
