Default No Duty to Secure Wi-Fi from BitTorrent Pirates

What's this? A judge using common sense in a file sharing case? How is this even possible? A crucial ruling in one of the ongoing BitTorrent lawsuits in the United States has delivered a clear win for open Wi-Fi operators. Among other things, California Judge Phyllis Hamilton ruled that Internet subscribers are not required to secure their wireless networks to prevent outsiders from pirating movies. In other words, people can't be held liable for the alleged infringements of other people on their network.
