Due to the current popularity of tiny computers and man’s relentless desire to watch nudity absolutely everywhere, Wi-Fi hotspot usage is on the rise. Unfortunately, with that comes the problem of people, knowingly or not, connecting to unsecure wireless networks without permission. It’s not like hacking the freaking Pentagon here – if you’re in public, your computer will automatically look for a signal and, if there’s no security (such as a password) to get online, you can connect to it in seconds. Say you’re on a park bench a block away from Starbucks, but their signal juuust reaches you. So, you log in and check your email.

Hell, if they left it unsecured, they probably WANT people to use it, right? And even if not, it’s not like it can get you thrown in prison.

Oh wait … it totally can.

Say hello to the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, which makes it a crime to gain “unauthorized access” to a computer or a website. What does “unauthorized access” actually mean? Nobody knows. But the law says it applies to wireless routers. Luckily, law enforcement has lately become more lenient in enforcing “Wi-Fi squatting” in relation to the CFAA. So they probably won’t bust you for the federal crime of stealing wireless Internet (even though they totally could, if they some day feel like it), but it doesn’t matter, because that’s where your state’s laws kick in.

6 Laws You’ve Broken Without Even Realizing It

In Douglas, Wyoming, you can get an official Jackalope hunting license. The Jackalope hunting season is only one one day: June 31st. The only times you are allowed to hunt a Jackalope on that day are between sunset and sunrise.

The legal notice that comes with this license states: “W.S. 43-I-113 permits a duly licensed non-resident to hunt only the “pedigres Leapusalopus Ineptus”, known as the pronghorn jackalope. It can readily be identified as having the size, shape and color of a jackrabbit with horns similar to the pronghorn antelope or smaller deer. Non-residents are warned and forbidden by law to hunt the larger and endangered “Leapusalopus Incisorous Maximus”, the saber-toothed jackalope. These are distinguished by being much larger (100 - 150 lbs), having foot-long fangs, and are extremely vicious.”
