I got a lawyer, and in August 2010, I filed a court order in the New York Supreme Court to get that IP address.
I was told I would need a court order to get the IP address for the computer where these things were coming from.
In early 2011, the Internet service provider alerted the owner of the IP address that I was seeking his street address.
|IP address |
The numerical sequence that serves as an identifier for an Internet server. An IP address appears as a series of four groups of numbers separated by dots. The first group is a number between 1 and 255 and the other groups are a number between 0 and 255, such as 18.104.22.168. Every server has its own unique address.
