This Law is Completely Re-dick-ularse
I'm sure my fellow Brit's are now sleeping soundly at night knowing that their WiFi Networks and bandwidth are being protected by the Gestapo. Didn't we fight a war 60 odd years ago over perversions like this?
These are the types of law's that make the UK government look uneducated and behind the times with regards to technology. The country's legal system is stuck in the 18th Century - if the doddering 85 year old judge who's half deaf with a serious case of piles and gout doesn't understand it (which he won't), then it's "off to the gallows with you".
If you have not taken adequate measures to ensure the security of the transmission, then it implies that you don't care about the security of the signal. It would take someone with only a limited amount of Tech Savvy to laugh this one out of court.
I saw the light and left that bloody country 20 years ago because of BS like this.
What's next? Arresting some for wearing a loud shirt in a built up area?
