free wi-fi to go bye-bye???!!!

H.R. 3791

———————————————-

…bill requires anyone with a wireless network that’s open to the public to report any illegal images that pass through their network…

The SAFE bill, or Securing Adolescents From Exploitation-Online Act…anyone with an open Wi-Fi network will be required to comply with the law…

…if a passerby uses the access point to find or share child pornography. It could also cause some businesses that offer free Wi-Fi service to shut down their open networks.

The SAFE bill must still pass the U.S. Senate before becoming law, which could take months.

…The bill doesn’t require WiFi owners to police anything, merely ‘stiffening the penalties’ for those who make no effort to report obvious child pornography.
