Theft of service as a minimum will be applicable, and harsher IT crimes related charges might also apply.

It is most certainly NOT a felony, and I challenge you to cite where in the CFR you think it'd apply. This is unlicensed air. I have no intention of stealing anyone's service so please, spare me the hype.
