Federal Judge holds that people can not be identified by IP address

HAH! Take that, you stupid... ::mutters off::

Also, this is interesting:

Essentially, if you use a combination of 1 (one), I (upper case i), l (lower case L), you could theoretically make it kinda hard to positively identify your car by license plate. Similarily, 0 (zero) and O (upper case o) would do the same. It's a little harder, but 2 and Z may also do the same.

...You'd think I'd have heard about this...

Thanks for the link.

Heh, you're welcome. It only got posted 'cause I've argued excessively with people over that concept (whether IP addresses identify people or not, which... link to whether or not IP addresses are private information).
