Here is the situation: My friend received a catalog in the mail and she never ordered it. She called the company that shipped it and they told her it was an order that was placed and could not say anything else. She wants to track down the IP address of the requester and find out who they are. My gut says (and what I figured out) is that she can not get it from the ISP without a court order. Since IPs are dynamic it would take a lot of work to find the answer since the exact time of the catalog request must be known. Since it was not an illegal act, I would say her chances of finding this is next to zero. Does that sound right? After all, you hear about so much crimes online, I doubt anyone would consider "someone sent me a catalog I didn't want because it contained adult material" an offense that would lead to anything. While it was very upsetting for her, it is not a crime. Am I right?
