Tom poses a hypothetical question about WIFI and Starbucks. I read about this a few weeks ago and have to say if Tom’s hypothesis goes into the real worl I think too many smaller shops next door would end up opening and offering a free service just to prove a point.
My initial reaction when I read about the proliferation of WIFI was excellent, coffee shops and cafes across the nation will be installing WIFI. Of course I do have to admit here to living directly above a coffee shop so it would be a free service for me that I could use without nipping in for an overpriced coffee.
So would that be breaking the law?

It would appear that I do not need to pay for broadband at home anyway – I could just nip around the corner with my laptop. It would mean I’d have an excuse to go buy a lovely new iBook.
