Right now, there aren't enough IPv4s to go around and I'm sure this is causing police investigaters issues with trying to tie illegal activity to the guilty party because of "cloaking" protocols such as NAT.


Actually, they already utilize warrants to seize external (or WAN) IP information (before it has gone through NAT) from ISPs, which everyone has a unique WAN IP (so whether v4 is running out of or not is largely irrelevant). They hardest part is tying the owner of the account the IP belonged to at the time of the infraction to a specific person. This is where reasonable search and seizure comes in whereas if law enforcement has enough of a case to get a judge to sign off on a house warrant, they can size all electronic equipment and either do an on-site forensics or bring it back to a lab to do a clean-room approach to rebuilding and copying whatever is needed to build a case.

An excellent example of what happens on the tech-side of law enforcement, you should read this article form ArsTechnica: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/08/operation-joint-hammer-taking-down-the-largest-child-pornography-conspiracy-ever-prosecuted/ (warning for those with ADHD: 4 pages of reading).

So... Innocently unknowingly use your ISP's transparent proxy/cache (such as most ISPs use) and you may well fall foul of the CFAA...

A deliberate lie. Speaks volumes about the veracity of all your other posts.

A deliberate lie.

Please explain your interpretation and for how zealous officials could not possibly stretch the ruling to arbitrarily ensnare all of us.

Never use a proxy or cache? Not even a transparent proxy or cache?...

All in our own little world...

The link you posted did an excellent job of that. Perhaps you should have read it.

Another example of overzealous officials?...

When a Man Takes on the Feds

Now the government wants to ruin the CEO who fought back.


To my reading and personal view, looks like high powered officials can be unreasonably vindictive to become persecutors... Is this another Aaron Swartz example in the making?

Only in America?

Ah, typical nanny state shenanigans, just like mandates to be green. Government knows best.

That cynically trivializes what I see as a ridiculous overreach that I can only describe as persecution...

Read the details again?... By the same reasoning, all ball-bearings manufacturers should be closed down and all the management hanged until death.


Only possible in the USA?!

What has that got to do with petty officials being empowered by overly vague laws and the ease of abusing their officialdom to persecute people to death?

Google is accused of wiretapping:


Google FAILS in attempt to nix Gmail data-mining lawsuit

Google faces a torrid court battle in the US after a judge ruled that a class action lawsuit brought against the company that challenges its practice of scanning emails for ad-targeting can proceed...

... that Google "has violated state and federal antiwiretapping laws in its operation of Gmail."...



Millions of people. Billions of items:

By the Laws of America and the 'Justice' meted out to Aaron Swartz, does this now mean a legal massacre and a boom business in electric chairs in the USA?


Only in the USA...
