It is an impossibility to link IP addresses to individual devices. I take it no-one in authority has any idea of how NAT works, never mind how DHCP can dynamically assign IP addresses and therefore reuse the same IP address across several customers. It has been proven time and again in county courts that IP addresses alone cannot be used for verify a user/customer.
