He then repeatedly raped and sexually abused Masha on camera, sometimes during trips to Disney World.

1. it would be hard to prove whether an IP owner was the person who watched a specific video

 

Due to more than 1 person living in a house, and visitors, etc.

4. What an awesome idea!

With the exception of her "father" (sic) who should lose everything to her (and possibly the ex wife and other kids).
