This was posted today to the nycwireless list.
The article mentioned is quite dry, and many pages have
footnotes that take up half the page. I doubt there
is anything new technical in there for people on this
list, but I think it's a worthwhile reference.

I just published a law-review article that considers
wardriving and, more broadly, disclosure policies.  I
conclude that wardriving is legal and that there is an
intriguing movement afoot among "hackers" to form an ethical
code.  I am doing a bit of promotion of my article -- it is
freely available either on SSRN or online at the Virgina
Journal of Law & Technology's site. Here are the details if
you would like to pass it along to Politech readers.

Wardialing, Wardriving, and the Emerging Market for Hacker
Ethics," Virginia Journal of Law & Technology, Vol. 9, No.
