My mistake. Glad I'm not anyones Lawyer.

I did a little more homework, and the best I've come up with is:

The latest I can find on subpoenas related to IP addresses is the RIAA v.
Verizon lawsuit. RIAA prevailed as far as it has been taken, but I don't
know for certain if Verizon complied yet.

My questions are:
  1. Can anyone find the provision in any law or ruling that allows the
  ISP to be compensated for the time it takes to accomodate these?

  2. In the instance that the information that ties the IP address to the
  username is removed on a regular basis, what liability do I maintain?
