State: Wi-Fi cloaks a new breed of intruder

"'It's no different if I went out and bought a Microsoft program and started sharing it with everyone in my apartment. It's theft,' said Kena Lewis, spokeswoman for Bright House Networks in Orlando."

Bullshit. You can't make the assumption that letting people utilitize your wireless network constitutes theft. And it is different -- it would be more like subletting or letting people stay the night at your house when you are in town. We should boycott Bright House Networks.

Of course, after saying that, I realized I didn't know who they were. I went and checked. Ahhhh! It makes so much sense. They are one of those (immoral?) cable companies. No wonder they made that comment.
