I had an internet connection with native #IPv6, it was dynamic e.g. DHCP and changed biweekly. I just realized a potential advantage: it removed the long-lived association between IP and household. Are ISPs actually considering this? Does anyone think it is a useful protection? It seems it would have to change a lot more often to actually be useful. I've always assumed it was just a tactic to get people to pay more for a static IP.
not sure if I recall correctly
@eighthave back in the day ISPs were openly advertising piracy in Austria. I think I had connection resets after 8 hours on my DSL line and Reconnecting always issued a new IPv4. Together with local telecommunication legislation (Frenmeldegeheimnis) this was pretty effective protection from copyright enforcement.
