Comment Botnets? (Score 1) 222

In the age where we're constantly discovering new botnets. Where most computer owners probably couldn't tell if their computer is being controlled by someone else (can most experts even be sure?) how can you say that an IP address is personally identifiable in a legal context? I guess if you can prove that 1) a computer had that IP address at the moment in time in question 2) Another computer didn't have the same IP address at the same time (always fun) 3) The computer was not compromised by an entity unknown to the user 4) The person you're trying to identify was using the computer at the time.
