I'll defer to Actual Lawyers obviously, but the way I see it, Packetstream
doesn't have any contractual or business relationship with my ISP. I do.
If I sell them my bandwidth, and my ISP decides to take action, they come

running "someone else's software" , but that isn't gonna hold up, since I
am responsible for what is running on my home network, knowingly or

with their provider.
If you put your apartment on airbnb without knowing whether subletting is
against the terms of your lease... well, there's just no cure for stupid.
