    Next time i'm passing a CPW i'll check on my phone to see if they have a wireless network! I suppose its free advertising if people do be cheeky and try and borrow some bandwidth!

    Not illegal if its there to be used! I'll admit its a bit dodgy using remote desktop as it probably means the numpty who set up the firewall didn't block all the ports.
    If they've purposely made the http available and direct it to there website then there just being clever and i doubt they would prosicute a customer surfing there own website! I might be cheeky and call into local CPW and ask if they were aware they had a unsecure wifi.

    Just be careful mate that's all, I'd have to look into it but I'm sure there is some legislation on it somewhere.

    It is definately illegal. No if's, no but's. Its illegal.

    Its THEFT!! unless you have their permission to use it.

    There has already been quite a lot of case's in papers where the courts came down hard on net thieves doing this.
