Are you legally liable for running an open wireless network?

Earlier this week, I read an interesting blog post discussing the legal aspects of whether you should secure your home wireless network or leave it unencrypted.  The post was actually written by a good friend of mine, Aamir Lakhani, who blogs at http://www.assassin711.com and micro-blogs on Twitter @Assassin711.

I wrote a blog post about it over at Computerworld, including my opinion on running open wireless networks.

Read it.  Digg it.  Comment on it.

Or comment on it here… What do YOU think? Should people secure their home wireless networks? Why or why not?  Should people be concerned about their data ?
