Well, that depends on the country you are living in. They are certainly 
liable if (and that's a big if) somebody can prove it wasn't you. I think 
you would be at least partly liable here if you have an open WAP. But as 
I don't want to find out the hard way and I don't want to pay a lawyer to 
have an answer to the question, I will not let strangers access my WLAN.
