EFF Offers Sensible Advice, Will Probably Be Ignored

The EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation) is trying to bring more sense and circumspection to the practice of using an IP address as the sole evidence for filing subpoenas and search warrants. They have released a white paper titled: Unreliable Informants: IP Addresses, Digital Tips and Police Raids.
At minimum, police should stop representing IP addresses as sufficiently similar to a physical street addresses or license plates to justify a warrant, since they are neither.
In today's environment, I doubt it will will make much difference - but well done for bringing it up.
