Beyond any reasonable doubt

The mass-BitTorrent lawsuits that are sweeping the United States are in a heap of trouble.
After a Florida judge ruled that an IP-address is not a person, a Californian colleague has gone even further in protecting the First Amendment rights of BitTorrent users.
The judge in question points out that geolocation tools are far from accurate and that it's therefore uncertain that his court has jurisdiction over cases involving alleged BitTorrent pirates.
As a result, 15 of these mass-BitTorrent lawsuits were dismissed.
