The urban legend usually involves pedophiles in cars using your network to 
trade kiddie porn. 

My question on that is whether ISPs, like Verizon, keep snapshot records of 
what DHCP/PPPoE lease was held by which account on a given day months ago.  
Is this something that is easily tracked down, or does the information 
disappear into the ether every time you are assigned a new IP?
