Ok, let's say Verizon owns a block of IP's that are given to people all over the country. ARIN is in charge of documenting all of this information.
MG pulls up that information when it sees your IP address.
Then they compare physical address the company used (the information that ARIN has) to register the IP addresses, and goes by that. 9 times out of 10, that registered physical address isn't going to be in the same state that you live in.
I kinda think that Kentucky knew this going in (or at least had a consultant tell them this,) and it makes a great case for them to go into court and say "hey, Kentuckians can still access these sites. These companies have to forfeit their domains."
