I sense that you think this is difficult, and I agree.

The ISP logs have to show the exact time of possession, and use, by an alleged offender of a particular IP address.

This exercise may reveal exactly how much the ISP knows, like MAC address (and smart device equivalent), that could be discovered by confiscating user's machines.

Submission + - Australia To Ban Unvaccinated Children From Preschool (newscientist.com) 1

An anonymous reader writes: No-jab, no play. So says the Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, who has announced that unvaccinated children will be barred from attending preschools and daycare centers. Currently, 93 per cent of Australian children receive the standard childhood vaccinations, including those for measles, mumps and rubella, but the government wants to lift this to 95 per cent. This is the level required to stop the spread of infectious disease and to protect children who are too young to be immunized or cannot be vaccinated for medical reasons. Childcare subsidies have been unavailable to the families of unvaccinated children since January 2016, and a version of the new “no jab, no play” policy is already in place in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Other states and territories only exclude unvaccinated children from preschools during infectious disease outbreaks. The proposed policy is based on Victoria’s model, which is the strictest. It requires all children attending childcare to be fully immunized, unless they have a medical exemption, such as a vaccine allergy.
