A new business line for city governments

I’ve written before about the issue of municpal governments getting into the business of providing broadband internet access. I neglected to mention that time the nice blog on the issue by Progress and Freedom Foundation. Some of the more interesting recent posts look at the problems cities have had with “spammers, illegal file-swappers and people launching virus attacks” from free municipal wireless systems, and given those problems, the potential for liability for the city governments than own the wireless system.
