Courts have found in the past that, and I'm going to steal the theme from the Cnet discussion, IPs aren't IDs.
Judges(s) involved usually stupid and/or don't understand technology. Juries aren't too bright either.
You would hope that normal citizens
would be more tech savvy in 2008 but most people wouldn't even know what an IP is if you asked.
....... that two images of nude underage girls in suggestive poses were found on the HDD and or USB drive(s) that he attempted to destroy as the Feds
apporoached his home.
Were it not for that (images & attempted destruction), I don't see how the case would have stuck. Seems he would have to have the files that he
supposedly clicked on within his possession. Please correct me if I am wrong.
But then, just look at the RIAA, seems that an IP address is all that is needed for positive identification in the legal system. In my own opninon,
that isn't right considering how many ways that scenario can go wrong.
