    Same goes with using WiFi you are not authorized to use.
    I spoke with someone at Time Warner / RoadRunner of Wisconsin, and it is the policy of Time Warner / RoadRunner that if you allow someone to connect to your cable modem through wi-fi, they are stealing cable services and both of you will be prosecuted.

      Then it’s a good thing they aren't prosecutors! If I purchase cable service from Time Warner, I will decide who I allow to connect to it, not them. I would like to see how successful they are at getting a county attorney to pursue charges. Will they also try to prosecute me if I allow my neighbor to come over and watch the Soprano’s on my TV?

      Time Warner policy, thankfully, is not law.
      ATTN. SPECOPS AND GECKO45 my secret username is CIDDECEP and I am your S2. My authorization code is Six Wun Quebec Oscar Fife. Your presence here is tactically dangerous and compromises our overall mission parameter. Cease and desist all activity on this board. Our “enemies” are deft at computer hacking and may trace you back to our primary locale. You have forced me to compromise my situation to protect your vulnerable flank. This issue will be addressed later.

        Keep in mind that in most states, plugging your laptop into a line you are not specifically authorized to is multiple felonies, including federal crimes.

        Theft of telecommunication service (state felony)
        Theft of telecommunication service (federal crime)
        Computer Crimes Act (various state felonies)
        Nathan, what some folks forget are the statutes, federal and state, that if you have knowledge of a crime and fail to report same in a timely manner you too can be prosecuted. Virginia if you know of criminality and fail to report it, that is the same as assisting in the commission of the crime.
        Most jurisdictions use the "reasonably prudent man theory" quite successfully.
