If I am sitting in the privacy of my own home, with my own laptop and I obtain access by merely connectining to a wireless broadcast, for no other uses than internet access....

1) AM I STEALING......

2) OR AM I USING A SERVICE LEGALLY THAT HAS BEEN BROADCASTED INTO MY OWN HOME???

3) OR SOME OTHER OPINION...

If I am sitting in the privacy of my own home, with my own laptop and I maliciously disable a Secured wireless broadcast, for internet access only....

1) AM I STEALING......

2) OR AM I USING A SERVICE LEGALLY THAT HAS BEEN BROADCASTED INTO MY OWN HOME???

3) OR SOME OTHER OPINION...

Not looking for current state statutes or federal regulations/codes.... Just your opinion.
