I'm told IP addresses aren't property.
Neither is the address painted on your curb. So it's ok for me to paint over the number in front of your house and
paint your house number on my curb, right?
The issue isn't about property. It is about stealing an ADDRESS making impossible for the legitimate holder of that
ADDRESS to do business.
