anonymity, privacy and p2p litigation

I recently attended and gave a talk at the First Annual p2p Litigation Summit in Chicago. One of the key topics of discussion related to the privacy implications of court-ordered disclosure of individuals' identities in cases where they are alleged to have committed a legal wrong online. The differences between Canada and the US on this point are surprising. The conference was very interesting and included a presentation from an individual who had been wrongly named in one of the RIAA lawsuits. I've provided a couple of reflections on what I took away from this conference for p2pnet.
