But don't the fees actually have to be reasonable?

If you say your fee is  $150 per IP address,  I think they might bring
it to the judge
and claim the ISP is attempting to avoid subpoena compliance by charging an
unreasonable fee.

They can point to all the competitors charging $40 per IP.

This would be very interesting with IPv6 though,  and customers assigned /56s.

"You want all the records for every IP in this /56,  really?"
