RIAA Enemy No. 1

Most folks who swap music files are a little scared of the consequences, but this guy in a posting on TechTV is completely fearless because he’s set up what amounts to a mobile pirate swappers’ delight: an 800GB RAID server in his car that connects via WiFi to open networks around his home town of San Francisco. Not only is this guy chintzing the record labels (something we have only a little pity for here at ST) but he’s definitely taking advantage of open WiFi networks, and that’s something I don’t cotton to. The potential consequences of using someone else’s open network for illegal activity are huge, and could put a serious damper on the free WiFi movement.
