@incredibill and other defender of criminal actions
I have said it in the older thread and say it again:
Google broke the law in numerous countries including the US by sniffing and recording data without consent of data owners.
Google admitted doing this (claiming they did this unintentionally and by error)
It is now up to law authorities to decide how to handle the case (after all their seems to be no harm done and as a first time offender Google may get away with a slap on the wrist).
Make no mistake: Sniffing and recording data from unsecured wifi is a criminal act. Even in the US.
No need to believe me. Simply check with your local lawyer BEFORE you reply.
