Unsecured Wi-Fi to Become Illegal?

@ 2005/11/07
News.com is carrying a story for a draft proposal for law in Westchester County in New York state that would outlaw unsecured wi-fi connections. Public internet access would require a network gateway server with a firewall and also require home/business office users to install firewalls to protect personal info, even if their connection is encrypted. Violations would carry fines of $250-$500

Good or bad; when I turn on my wireless card, there are at least three to four wireless routers around unsecured.
