It also needs

1. Someone to complain to law enforcement

2. Law enforcement to decide this is something worth following up on
re prosecution - especially if the crook is not within their
jurisdiction, it'd be FBI, and they have a minimum threshold for
damage caused (higher than the few thousand dollars a /16's
registration fees cost?)

[not counting 7.5 million bucks paid in aftermarket deals like
microsoft from nortel]
