TRADE FIRSTBORN FOR WI-FI HOTSPOT?

THE WEEK THAT WAS

Some Londoners unwittingly agreed to give away their firstborn children in exchange for access to free Wi-Fi, according to Time.com. Cyber Security Research Institute conducted an experiment to emphasize the risks associated with public Wi-Fi networks. In June, researchers set up a Wi-Fi hotspot for users who agreed to a set of terms that included a "Herod Clause" requiring users to hand over their eldest child "for the duration of eternity." The page was disabled after six people signed up. Finnish security firm F-Secure, which sponsored the research, said: ''As this is an experiment, we will be returning the children to their parents. While terms and conditions are legally binding, it is contrary to public policy to sell children in return for free services, so the clause would not be enforceable in a court of law." - Time.com

Looking ahead: Federal Open Market Committee minutes released Wednesday.
