IP address alone is not enough to sue

A month ago we mentioned how Lightspeed Media's mass-lawsuit was likely to fail. New York Judge Gary Brown has now ruled that an IP-address is not sufficient evidence to identify copyright infringers. In his recommendation order the Judge labels mass-BitTorrent lawsuits a waste of judicial resources. For a variety of reasons he recommends other judges to reject similar cases in the future. This doesn't bode well for Lightspeed.
