Legal ImplicationsEdit

In Germany, providing wireless networks has mostly legal implications, as the provider will be held responsible for any illegal activities of those connecting via a LAN into the Internet. If someone does not close his WiFi he will be held legally responsible if someone uses this open network for illegal activities, like illegal downloads, cyber war or cyber crime. |This way the German government protects the businesses providing network services, especially Deutsche Telekom. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 10:10, 16 March 2015 (UTC)


"free radio" is a bad translation. --Fmrauch (talk) 12:29, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

  • Perhaps a literal translation would be "Free Spark", as a reminder that the first broadcasts apparently were done by means of series of electric sparks, using the Morse Code. (talk) 18:47, 20 July 2016 (UTC)
