Dear All

I just wanted to take up one point concerning Yves' message:

What we are expecting to do here is match up files downloaded
with the IP addresses that subscribers have registered. We
can then give each subscriber details of accesses from their 
registered IP addresses. Because we will report only on
registered addresses, machines scanning the web will be excluded.
(Nearly all subscribers have IP controlled access rather than
password access.)

Best wishes
