Mooching Wireless

I've known friends that have had great success borrowing a friendly neighbor's wireless bandwidth. But did you know that it could get you in trouble? It seems strange that it should especially if the neighbor is leaving it open willingly. Of course if the moocher is using the bandwidth to do nefarious things that's another story. But it feels open-source to share your bandwidth with the neighborhood, especially if the ISP's are OK (apparently only Speakeasy has gone on the record as saying they're OK with it).
