I wanted to enquire for anyone who may have experience or had issues with people running Open Wireless Networks and/or have any particular view to the Open Wireless movement (https://openwireless.org/)?

Alongside this question I am interested in gauging how much IP Addresses are used as a token of identity for legal purposes in practice.

This for the purposes of research at the Law Faculty of Otago. My apologies if this is somewhat outside of the purview of this mailing list. Any insight gratefully accepted.
