Lets say that somehow, Google is forced by a court to reveal the IPs and this guy is tracked down. He turns out to have written this in some way that was totally illegal. Then what? That still leaves the entire Linux community in receipt of stolen goods. Best case scenario everyone distributing the code has to stop. That's an enormous mess even without taking into account boxed CDs of Linux distributions.
That's just the best case.
