Re: Using IP address legal & practical

Or maybe they have to get your laptop's MAC address and a photo ID from you, then link that record with a record of your session so that, if anyone downloads copyrighted material, they can check the IP against the MAC, then look to see whose ID is on file with that MAC attached.

And all that effort can be undone by someone with a fake ID or an employee who accidentally or deliberately enters the information incorrectly.

Mac addresses can and do get repeated.

Furthermore, changing your mac address is trivial.
