p2p news / p2pnet: If you use Wi-Fi, make sure war-drivers – or anyone else – can’t get at it.
That’s the message from a Cincinnati man Paramount claims wantonly shared a flic called Coach Carter with the newly-reformed eDonkey p2p application.
But, "I don’t even know what they’re talking about," ChannelCincinnati.com has the man, Russell Lee, saying. "I didn’t do it."
Lee has four computers and, working for Paramount, MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America) KeyStone Kops checked all four, "alleging he had one of them cleaned to erase evidence," says the story, going on:
"But Lee claims that because his wireless connection was unsecured at the time, anyone could have parked near or in front of his home, tapped in and then driven off.
ChannelCincinnati.com quotes Lee as warning, "please, if you’re using wireless Internet, have somebody install it that knows what they’re doing. Because if you don’t, they could get in trouble just like me."
Tired of being treated like a criminal? They depend on you, not the other way around. Don’t buy their ‘product’. Do bug your local political representatives. Use emails, snail-mail, phone calls, faxes, IM, stop them in the street, blog. And if you’re into organizing, organize petitions, organize demonstrations and then turn up on your local political rep’s doorstep, making sure you’ve contacted your local tv/radio station/newspaper in advance.
