I know of a decent sized global ISP that ran (runs?) a large darknet
that was the equivalent of a few /16's routed to a fbsd host running
'tcpdump' (a tad more complex, but essentially this). BayTSP (one of
the 'make legal threats for the mpaa/riaa' firms) sent ~2k notes to
the ISP about downloaders on these ips.

Looking at netflow data (sample 1:1 on that interface) they had
portscanned (from ip space registered in their name) each address in
the range and sent subpoena-material to all ips that they thought they
got a response from.

At least baytsp got theirs? (money I mean)
