Hypothetically, you park at the Super 8 motel and use their Wi-Fi connection on your DS without ordering it. Is this considered stealing? This is hypothetic, of course. It's not like I did this today... :-\

Yeh; it's considered that, but it's usually considered their fault for not securing the airwaves.

If it makes you feel any better, I rutinely steal my neighbor's Wi-Fi since my parents don't allow free internet. >:D

That doesn't really make me feel too much better, but I guess you did have a point about the security.

I've only heard of one case where someone got in trouble for 'stealing' local wifi.

I've never heard of people getting in trouble for stealing internet connection, but I know it's against the law or what ever.

Whenever I'm on vacation or something, I usually end up stealing the wireless connection.

That just reminded me of how long it's been since I've actually been on a vacation... *emoemoemo*
I think the last time I went on a vaction is back in April of 07. My family & I went to Cleveland to watch the women's final four basketball. My next one is 4/04/08 through 4/11/08, when we go to Tampa, Florida, for the same reason. I'm going to Disney actually too.

And which was that?
I can't find the story at the moment, but around a year ago, a guy, in his parked car, was using the internet provided by the cafe a few feet away. A cop pulled up and fined him for stealing internet. The cage owner didn't find out about it till a few days later.
