Judge Says An IP Address Is Not Enough To Identify A Movie Pirate

The plaintiffs also questioned the judge’s previous ruling in a case involving a porn company known for being a copyright troll. In that lawsuit, the judge had remarked that the “Plaintiff has not shown how this geolocation software can establish the identity of the Defendant. There is nothing that links the IP address location to the identity of the person actually downloading and viewing Plaintiff’s videos, and establishing whether that person lives in this district.” – Chris Morran, Consumerist.com
