I don't understand how you can assert this.  Use of IP addresses follows
the current policies, whatever they are.  They have no grandfathered
rights.

Oops, here I am sounding like I know something about lawyering.  ;-)  I
think we all need to either wait for the results, or if so moved, send
in amicus curiae briefs.  Not a lot else we can do, since few if any of
us are lawyers, except pray that the judge is enlightened.
