Even going so far to identify the machine used doesnt necessarily identify the person who used it.
Even with specific accounts and log-in information it isnt possible to determine without any doubt the individual who is at the other end of that computer. Even allegedy live webcam footage can be a recording.
Something internet daters and cop seducing weirdos have known for years.
Just because my car is registered to me and theoretically I'm the only one with the keys doesnt mean that I drove it over the sidewalk striking 10 people.
But apparently until this ruling that has been plenty to send swat teams kicking in doors.
I wonder if this will stand as is, be struck down, or be used to usher in a new era of internet ID.
