its jsut like a drug manuafacturer selling speed for fat loss knowing the possible harm, and getting off teh hook because of the little disclaimer that says, "please consult your doctor to see if this is right for you", knowing that 99% of people would never do that, nor read the fine print.
With a business plan targeting the sales of millions of routers, its clear they could care less wether the end user violates their acceptable use policy.
Are there any ISPs that allow circuit sharing, legally?  I know a number of DSL resellers that allow circut sharing, but don;t disclose that their underlying agreement with their carrier prohibits it.

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.
Wow, have any of you actually reviewed their site? OMFG the sky is falling <hands waving>! You may be interested in

Also, the Terms and Conditions of Use CLEARLY states:

4. Prior Requirements
The user that opts for the Linus or Bill category, should, prior to accepting these
T&Cs and before registering with the FON Community:
(i) have a FON Social Router or a router that is compatible with the FON
Software and (ii) have a contract with an ISP that permits the FONero to share
