I think what Charles is getting at is, is it legal for an ISP to place the 'no open AP' or 'no sharing your connection' restriction on your service? I have heard some people arguing the case that NN is "I'm paying for my bandwidth so I can do what I want to with it".

If it was, then it would be illegal to block hackers and criminals from using your network as well. As FON clearly has no concern for Acceptable Use Policiies, therefore illegal activity, and AUPs are clearly allowable and enforcable contracts. Strategically its a great time for FON to release their venture, to test the rules, the public, and ISPs. Tom DeReggi

    out of curiosity (would like input from the pro net neutral
    people) -- would blocking something like FON constitute a
    violation of net neutrality?

Anyone seen FON ? This is insane. Anyone test one yet ? I want to know what network their
        hotspot runs back to, so I can block it....
Can someone that might have one throw a sniffer against it ?
