Additionally, the Bluehost subpoena also demands any other identifying information corresponding to persons or computers who have accessed or downloaded files hosted using your service and associated which is not related to “” file but from the Geohot’s website.
Via the YouTube subpoena, Sony seeks information related to the video’s of the “Jailbroken PS3 3.55 with Homebrew.” The subpoena demands data to identify who watched the video and ‘documents reproducing all records or usernames and IP addresses that have posted or published comments in response to the video.”
In fourth subpoena against Twitter, demands the provide all of Hotz’s tweets, and “documents sufficient to identify all names, addresses, and telephone numbers associated with the Twitter account.”
