Paul McNamara writes in an article Could that be the wireless police knocking? about a condominium/hotel developer in Tucson, Arizona, US including in the regulations for owning a condo that wireless networks have to be secured. I'm not sure I see why the developer would get involved in this subject unless they also happen to be the ISP (in which case I would consider 'no choice in ISP' a big downside to the whole deal). Wireless security needs to be addressed. In the right place: informing the public about it. Having security by default (like in siemens gigaset access points) and not hiding behind a load of unexplained acronyms in a page of the manual (seen in a recent linksys manual). I really don't think a homeowners association is the place. Although it does fit the profile of the 'homeowners associations sticking their nose into everything' which seem on the rise in the US. They make the homeowners association of the flat I lived in before look very sane (even when they did do dumb things on account of 'saving property value').
