3.

Petitioner may also serve a subpoena in the same manner as above on any ISP that

522(5), which states:
the term "cable operator" means any person or group of persons:

(A)who provides cable service over a cable system and directly or through one or more affiliates owns a significant interest in such cable system, or

management

for, through any arrangement, the and operation of such a cable systemj.]

shall comply with 47 U.S.C. § 551 (c)(2)(B), which states:

be charged by the ISP after the subpoenaed information is provided to Petitioner. 6. Petitioner may only use the information disclosed in response to a subpoena

served on an ISP for the purpose of identifying the unknown Does so Petitioner can protect and

enforce its rights as set forth in its Petition.
