We need logs for many other reasons.
Spammers, abuse, troubleshooting. Usage.
We also get court ordered abuse/hacking cases unrelated to copyright.
one doesnt need an to keep ip addresses 90days to make a nice pie chart or chart on usage....
if you get court order on a person then log them
spammers and abuse again if you get a complaint then log said ip/abuse. No need of 90days or more for everyone.
webalizer in fact can use said data make a chart and after the chart is made it/you can dispense with any logged ips.
in fact by default all https traffic on apache web servers is not logged HOWEVER if one wants logging you can turn it on and get a feel of usage for a time, a script can be written at the end of a month to clean out logs , and i bet 1 3rd of the logs would be a heck of a lot easier on whatever systems you are using.
im pretty sure most people would agree with most of what i say.
