Re Your ISP knows who has what IP at any given time.

Fine in theory, but in practice this has failed, why?, the concept of timezones was missed.

There was a case where people where accused of downloading porn, they lived in the UK, the detection was carried by an organisation in a different timezone.

There have been other instances involving more scary organisations, and no doubt there will be more.
