Re: How can people be wrongly accused of this recent issue?

There is one overiding common issue in all these threads and posts. Whether an IP = A person and is the owner of that IP liable for activites connected to it.

IMHO There is enough evidence/scenarios to the contrary presented in these threads by knowledgeable minds to quash the IP=person notion forever.

Until the Supreme Court of Canada rules on this divisive issue things will continue to spiral out of control.

Agreed, Elite.

I'd love to see that test case.

I'd rather watch it from the gallery though, and not the dock.

I wonder if it might just be left on a case by case basis in civil law?

Very true. Even for an IP being liable. When I was 11 I could hide my activities from the school's administrator, I'd have no trouble doing it within a local network these days.
