Hehe, to some degree that's why I do it.
I've been running open wireless access wherever I find spare bandwidth or friendly
network providers for years. Never had an issue and even with TICSA, there has been little
interest. We, as per the OpenWireless.org
T&C, discourage use of the network for heavy
/ illegal use, but encourage ubiquitous connectivity, and aim that no one is left without
some form of connectivity.
I have also been know to serve upside down, back-to-front images to people who abuse the
services tho, and the block button (MAC based rather than IP) is handy.

Just had a quick read of their homepage.
Wont touch that with a 10 foot barge pole.
In New Zealand, if you enable your guest network in a router, you open yourself up to
copyright infringement liability as your public ip address would be used by any guests
running torrent software.

Subject: [nznog] Experience with Open Wireless Networks?
I wanted to enquire for anyone who may have experience or had issues with people running
Open Wireless Networks and/or have any particular view to the Open Wireless movement
Alongside this question I am interested in gauging how much IP Addresses are used as a
token of identity for legal purposes in practice.
This for the purposes of research at the Law Faculty of Otago. My apologies if this is
somewhat outside of the purview of this mailing list. Any insight gratefully accepted.
