>From http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/DA-05-2213A1.pdf, the
FCC states that Continental alleges the area (louge) is under their
exclusive access and control and therefore Logan must butt out. Seems like
the attorneys on both sides have missed the obvious solution: Shield the
club room! Install shielding in the walls so that Continental's wifi signals
are trapped in the exclusive flyers-club room and the problem is solved.
Better yet, Continental can assure their members of better security and
ensure that non-members can't steal use of the system either.

Lawyers. Idiots. Too many of each on both sides of this one! The basic issue
is whether contract law can speak "against" other rights, and that's a
subject only the courts can and will rule on. (And they have ruled both
ways, and continue to do so.)

Anyone want to send a couple thousand feet of tin foil to Continental? And a
five-figure consulting fee bill?<G>
