tracking IPs?

Dell Inspiron 9300 notebook

Specs: Windows XP, 2Gb
Just found this article about music downloading: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technolog...

Apart from the data rights issues, which I must say BT did well to follow in this case, this doesn;t seem to be correct:

Firm uses software to track file-sharing sites and identifies the IP internet protocol addresses of the net connections used to share clients’ content

The only way that could be possible is if the MoS is putting up files to be shared and looking at the users who download them. It is unlikely that that file sharing sites would give MoS access to their servers.

I can't think of any other way this could be done without some form of illegal hacking on behalf of the MoS.

That's I believe where it starts in the courts is first they do get acess to the file sharing sites servers. Otherwise the site gets shut down.
