Yes, bits are bits from a technical perspective, and it shouldn't really matter what device in the chain is doing the requesting of said bits. Unfortunately, he put his signature to a contract that (I'm guessing) defines it otherwise. Right or wrong, technically correct or not, he will have agreed to it, and (again, guessing) that's going to carry a lot more legal weight than any technical argument.

Spaccarelli has admitted that he has used his iPhone to provide Internet access for other devices, a practice known as tethering, which violates AT&T's contract terms. AT&T says that means it has the right to turn off his service.

Game, set, match. I have NO love for AT&T, but if this guy admits to violating their ToS, he doesn't have much of a leg to stand on.

You catch someone doing something like this, and you put them under arrest yourself and then hope they resist, at which point you may use necessary force to subdue them. In California, anyway. Bring a witness with a camera.

Almost. You beat his ass first and then figure out how to blame it on him. In Texas, anyway. Bring a shotgun.

Polymer physicists are into chains.
