Re: This ought to be interesting...
said by mike0z :There is no law that states to any newbie to encrypt their network so this argument has always been one i found interesting..
doesn't it really come back to the "open wifi network" scenario, where your neighbor may very well be the pirate on your network?
1. is it on the owner to encrypt or be victimized?
2. A newbie is expected to understand encrypting their network? So in order to avoid being targeted by these trolls, they're expected to hire someone to secure their home?
3. Teenagers, we can only do so much. Even a computer setup in the living area can be overlooked and stuff downloaded.
I find this whole thing too "open" and allows any billy joe bob to be prosecuted for something they had no intention of doing or knowledge of.
How the courts don't find this new "business" of pay up or else a sham is beyond me as well. The industry makes more money off these pay up or else schemes then they'd ever have imagined.
If only they'd adapt.
