German Court Says Secure Your Wi-Fi or Get Fined
If you live in Germany, then you'd better put a password on your wireless router now.
A German court ruled that those with internet connections hooked up to a wireless access point must put a password to secure it or else face a fine of up to 100 euro, or around $126.
"Private users are obligated to check whether their wireless connection is adequately secured to the danger of unauthorized third parties abusing it to commit copyright violation," the court said, according to the AP.
