Readers weigh in on 'using' your neighbor's Wi-Fi

Readers weigh in of 'using' your neighbor's Wi-Fi - Aug. 16, 2005: "Earlier this month, a CNN/Money article explored the legality and risks of piggy-backing on your neighbor's wireless connection without paying for it, or even letting your neighbor know what you're doing.

The story touched a nerve within a large part of our audience. About a million people read it, and many of them were provoked enough to write in to share their thoughts.

Most of the e-mails we received took the tone of 'if it's not secured, and it's in my house, it's not stealing.' Which was interesting, because two-thirds of the respondents in our poll said using your neighbors wireless connection is stealing."

What do you think?
