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

said by bt:

It can only identify an account holder, not a person. I'm not sure where the law stands on liability for this, though.

Yeah that part has me confused about how it can even get to this point. There are already many cases showing this data can't be relied upon. The single best case right now is the Pierre Poutine case.

A conservative MP owning the account = not responsible

The Family owning the Rogers account where the spoofed IP came from = Not responsible.

Yet here we have people (courts, voltage, canipre and the harper gov) stating you are responsible.

*shakes head*

Doesn't make sense to me.

Well HM.

We don't yet.

It hasn't had chance to be tested.

This was the first line of defence - avoid warranted disclosure.

If it happens, and Voltage do take someone to court, then we may hear it.

Not all liability is created equal, even beyond the difference between criminal and civil cases.
