WiFi protection guidelines become law in California

Greetings Your Day listeners. On the air today we talked about a forthcoming law to protect you from inadvertently opening a free WiFi hotspot at your house. Since that recording this has become the law of the land in California.

From The Register:
From 1 October 2007, manufacturers must place warning labels on all equipment capable of receiving Wi-Fi signals, according to the new state law. These can take the form of box stickers, special notification in setup software, notification during the router setup, or through automatic securing of the connection. One warning sticker must be positioned so that it must be removed by a consumer before the product can be used.

We are next live on 12/14/2006!
