    Feel free to try that one in court too.

    Just sayin' if you're doing something you know is wrong, and you think you're going to "trick" the court by saying "oh but maybe it was unsecured because they wanted me to use it" isn't going to work.

    Courts don't need proofThey need beyond all reasonable doubt

    Our jails are full of people who thought that they'd never be caught or that they'd be able to blag it in court.

    If in doubt, try not to do stuff you know is wrong. If it's obvious to the court you're doing something that's obviously wrong, they'll just throw the book at you.

    I am amazed at how many folks who have posted here just do not get it....

    what you and I think / our opinions are not what will keep us out of jail.  it is the law and the judges and juries and they work on a set of rules that say how it will go.

    they look at things like "intent" "Proof" and what the law says.

    yes at times folks get away with things, but is it worth trying to get away with this?  I guess the other thing is the idea of your "moral compass"  in my case it says that if I did not ask to use it and I do not own it, if someone else has to pay for it then I can not touch it, it's not mine and I will not even try to mess with it.

    but possibly I am a rare person who looks to do the right thing,
