Court Finds Constitutional Significance in Defendant's Failure to Password-Protect Home Wireless Network 

,----[ Quote ]
| Taking a few moments to secure a 
| residential wireless network with a 
| password is a good idea, a fact recently 
| noted by the Federal Trade Commission. An 
| open network is an invitation for piggy-
| backers and data thieves.
| Who knew that password-protecting a 
| wireless router also had constitutional 
| significance? According to a recent court 
| decision from Oregon, the failure to 
| password-protect a wireless network can 
| diminish the extent to which the Fourth 
| Amendment protects computers and 
| information on that network from government 
| searches.

Italy Plans to Hold YouTube Accountable for its Users' Uploads (Updated)

,----[ Quote ]
| The Italian government is moving ahead with
| its plans to hold YouTube accountable for
| its users' copyright infringements.
| According to new regulations that have
| recently been proposed by the Italian
| government, YouTube would have to get a TV
| license to operate in Italy. Should Italy
| move ahead with this regulation, YouTube
| would have to follow the same rules and
| regulations as traditional broadcast
| channels. These new rules would eliminate
| the "safe harbor" rules that currently
| shield services like YouTube.
