1.  No IP addresses are misused, in the sense that should anybody
    have a valid claim to use these addresess, nothing I do will
    impact their ability to do so.  I'm merely transmitting numbers,
    there will never on my behalf be an IP packet using these
    numbers as source or destination addresses.

2.  I live in a civilized society and have repeatedly heard lawyers
    from the US deflate once they realized that they didn't known
    what the relevant laws said, much less the language to find out.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
