You hate AUPs, but you need one for guest Wi-Fi access

If you are a smart enterprise customer, you hate carrier “acceptable use policies” (AUPs). They have virtuous roots (avoiding liability for customer communications under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act) but have morphed into lengthy, (allegedly) non-negotiable, overly broad and one-sided “agreements” that make the customer responsible for all kinds of things for which it isn’t really responsible and shield the carrier from responsibility for things for which it should be responsible.

It’s all true. And you need one of your own.
