Did last night's US presidential debate Wi-Fi rip-off break the law?

Re: Worthy of a third world banana republic

Not true. Opposite in fact. Worthy of a modern developed western nation.

I've been sitting in several airport lounges in the sort of developing nations that you've described. Typically there were a dozen or more free wifi hotspots offered by all the food outlets, as a public service. A veritable feast of Internet connectivity.

Once upon a time, from our hotel window in a major city in Asia, my laptop picked up about 30 hotspots, and at least a dozen were wide open.

It's not until one gets back to western civilization that free wifi becomes rare.
