There are several places that offer Free Wifi, for instance, restaurants and coffee shops, etc.

So, if a person puts up an antenna, and receive signals, which ones can they use legally?

very few, as mentioned most free wifi are for customers of the shops etc -
other unsecure networks , are not really free , just someone left the security off
and analogy
if you walked down a street and saw a number of front doors open - do you think its legal to go in and help your self to anything in the house, just because the door was open

I have just seen your other post - this is a library wireless you are trying to use - this will be for library users only and not for anyone who lives in the street - and would be against the ISP rules even if the library wanted to allow users in the street to use
