Re: IP address is a bit meaningless

This is a scenario that has not been tested in Court. Does the Account Holder bear responsibility for what is done on their ISP connection?

A car can be caught on camera speeding. DVLA write to the Registered Keeper asking who was driving, and the law requires the Registered Keeper to identify the driver. A similar law does not exist for Internet accounts
