What do you mean by "bogus" or "non-existent?" If the IP addresses
are valid within your netblocks, but are just not active at the time
you look (or you are just doing "ping IP-ADDRESS" to verify, I
would assume some clever miscreant has simply decided to start
doing short-lived IP aliasing, firewalling, or something else
designed to make verification of piracy harder. You may have
to start logging traffic across your border to verify the claim.
