    There is not way to say that a IP starting with a 4 (Genuity seem to own that whole block) is used by anti piracy units its not possible to pin point them, they could be located at any address.

    I assume you refer to the fake P2P hosts and internet crawling bots that are around searching for illegal sites and putting fake files onto P2P when you say anti piracy *******. Its becoming more common now. Im sure however you have NOTHING to fear from these folk!!!

    IPs can be right down low.

    The - is reserved by IANA, the - also reserved by IANA and the first IP block out there is:

    General Electric Company :)
