Identifying the user
Am I missing something here?
If the connection after the hotspot is via NAT, then how can "big media" identify the user from the internet side? Or are hotspot providers going to have to go for the full ICR logging that the Snooper's Charter is imposing so that they can identify which of their users (who have proved their identity) it was that downloaded the dubious content?
Just setting a password and making users identify themselves to the hotspot operator seems insufficient.
