Stealing Wifi Gets you in Jail!

Pretty crazy thing out of Singapore where someone's been charged with stealing someone's unsecured wireless network with a possibility of spending 3 years in jail. A 17 yr old teen has been charged with stealing his neighbor's wireless connection as he was warned to get off the connection and didn't do it. I don't know more of the specifics but there's got to be more to the story then this. (Full Link HERE)

What you think about jailing the teen? Is he right for using something that's freely up in the air (like Radio Waves) that's unsecured is he an intruder for going on someone's network and stealing their connection?
