Legal Compliance

Whether you run a restaurant, a small cafe or a large homeowners association, if you're operating a WiFi network, you need to be aware of, and compliant with, all relevant laws and legislation regarding their operation.

First things first: You'll want to check with your current Internet Service Provider (ISP) to make sure your current service agreement plan allows you to offer connectivity to multiple people. Many providers offer some iteration of a "business class" connection that, for a few extra bucks a month, allows you to offer the connectivity that you'll need to get your wifi and running.

Now you want to be sure you are not opening your network or any users network up to security breaches and providing others with a place to engage in illegal activity, such as downloading copyrighted material and viewing child pornography.

Fortunately, there are a few things we can do to protect you, your business and your users.

While it's unlikely that you'll be held legally responsible for your users' copyright infringement, it may still cause problems with your internet service provider.

AT&T, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner and Verizon have struck a deal with the MPAA and RIAA that requires the providers to give warnings to residential customers believed to be stealing content. Five violations can end in termination of service.
