Nice job Sony


I's not that easy. Chances are the IP address to the end user is a block of addresses registered to the ISP. So Sony would have to file a complaint and police report, then they would have to get a warrant to get the info from the ISP of the user of that IP address during the time block that is given by Sony. Then the ISP would report the end user at that point but it still takes a lot of paper work and time. 
 Now I am glad that the punk got busted and banned but I still think there should be legal action taken. In a way I hope it is a kid and his parents get hit and this is my reasoning. I would want something like this to happen and get the news out so that MORE parents pay more attention to what these kids are doing! If I caught my kids glitching or cheating there would be NO online play for them on top of grounding from any game!
 For those of you that are hammering on the OP about sueing you OBVIOUSLY have never had something stolen from you! I don't care if it is a $10 pair of sunglasses, you have been violated! After an incident when I was younger EVERY car I have owned has an alarm installed in it. I also have my house protected and a lesson from my stepdad about how to load my weapon. If the 1st one doesn't stop you the 2nd one will. For those that don't get it, first one is copper you can guess what the 2nd one is.

Retribution, well deserved punishment. Justice has been brought.

My observation has purpose, hence I am here.
