Google This issue kind of fell by the wayside in all the WebM and Android violence, but apart from the cool things Google did this past week, they've also done something really bad. They claim it's a mistake, but the company has collected 600GB of data from open personal wireless networks in 33 countries through its Street View cars, prompting several countries to initiate official investigations into the search giant.

Your router isn't the web. And just because you put data on the web doesn't mean it's public, not even in the USA. Restrictions that comes with copyright, patents, trade secret etc. are still valid.
