Do you mean search for his ISP?
Or do you mean that somehow he is actually on someone else's servers?
When you say ISP do you mean IP? Most ISPs don't include that kind of upstream support.
If I do a whois query on his IP address, it lists a DIFFERENT company in a different state.
This is what it returns if I do a whois on his IP address: (Note, the website that is copying me is NOT unifiedlayer.com - it is a different domain name)
Yes, that's what is going on. The offender may have his own physical server. But he also needs a connection to the internet. (Rough analogy: You can own a physical telephone. But you also, separately, need to pay for phone service.) That's the part he is getting from-- apparently-- Unified Layer.
Unfortunately "Layer" is one of those name elements that immediately lead you to expect the worst. (Another is "Rack". You could make a list.) So they may or may not care. But it can't hurt to ask.
