Default ip

yesterday I suspected my neighbor had been downloading large files on my wireless. after confronting the neighbor about the issue, i found out he downloaded some web creator software and "the ip was recorded" according to him (i suppose he tried to register it and they caught him). i already knew he was using my internet for email (we are friends), but i didnt know he was doing anything illegal or downloading large files. i have since blocked him, but now i'm worried about legal action for his stupidity.

should i expect this to be taken to court? the software company has my IP, whats stopping them from coming down on me for his actions?

let me know what you think

well to come after one person for downloading this would mean they would have to be a mission, usually nothing happens but just dont go downloading a bunch of illegal files for a while
