In Which Country Can You Be Fined For Leaving Your Wi-Fi Unsecured?

The United States
Germany
Mexico
Canada

Answer: Germany

Under German law, not only are Wi-Fi node operators (be they individuals or businesses) liable for any activity on their Wi-Fi node, but running an open node without a password is an offense that incurs a fine of approximately $126 USD per incident.

As you can imagine, German citizens are none to happy about restrictive and antiquated laws applied to Wi-Fi, and the topic of relaxing the restrictions and implementing a more progressive system to govern Wi-Fi deployment have been hot topics in recent elections.
