Putnam Man Has Internet Complaint

A Putnam County man called the sheriff's department this week to complain that someone was using his Internet connection without his permission. But officials told him there wasn't much THEY could do about it. The man, who lives on Lee Seminary Road, wanted to know if there was a law against piggy-backing onto his Internet connection. He said his wireless network was being used by someone who lives across the road from him. Deputies told him that there was no law that they knew of against the activity, but the report doesn't say whether they also told him that he could stop such usage by setting up his computer so that it requires a password to log on to the Internet.
