What I don't understand is that we've known for years that you can't identify users by their IP address. You can't do it. It's not possible. You can sort of guess who they are by IP address, but if you're doing something serious (like cutting off their internet connection for a year and forcing them to continue paying for it), then you're a fool to rely on IP addresses.
The French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, was behind this bill and I'm quite happy to see him get smacked down on this idiocy.
