not if they really wanted the suspected end users info from the isp so that that prenda could sue them for something else later after finding out weather or not the end user actually had money to sue for.
I would stiff the court on the fines on the basis of jurisdiction. Where does france get off thinking they can fine an american company (unless google has offices in france). Then replace the google maps product on their site with a copy of the lawsuit and an explanation of why google maps is no longer being offered in france.
As far as the Pixar vs. Oil company bit I could see how somebody might get confused. Daewoo comes to mind they made cars, electronics, highways and skyscrapers, and even managed hotels. So it wouldnt surprise me to see a company branch out into other areas of industry.
dont consider this to be a wasted effort, consider it that you were just ahead of the game, and perhaps they are in need of the help of you and your friends. you never know. whats the worst they are gonna say, no thanks?

Here are some ways for the USPS to save money, raise the price of stamps and packages, close post offices that are too close together or not used enough, stop saturday delivery.
Here are some reasons why none of those things will ever happen. First who wants to be the senator to have a post office close in his or her district. Second there are at least 4 different commities that have oversight over the USPS and all of those senators are progressive communist bastards that all believe that government is to provide free services to all, which could not be further from what the actual role of the government is.
