First Look - seeqpod-vertical-crawler

Something was crawling that claimed to be related to SEEQPOD, some music service, that appears to be trolling the web looking for music files.

Here's the crawler information:

64.142.36.243
[64-142-36-243.dsl.static.sonic.net.]
"mozilla/5.0 (compatible; seeqpod-vertical-crawler +http://www.seeqpod.com)"
It appears to be registered as follows:
Juvenate Cux
2015 Stockton
S.F., CA 94133
US

Domain name: SEEQPOD.COM
Their server seeqpod.com is located at address 4.79.224.36 which is allocated to co-location.com
Co-Location.com Inc. LVLT-COLOC-4-79-224-32 (NET-4-79-224-32-1)
4.79.224.32 - 4.79.224.47
Not sure why they're crawling from some DSL line, but I'd block that and the co-location range just to be safe.

I just found the bot in my yesterday's logs and it came with a different IP (64.127.117.171) so it seems difficult to lock it out by blocking the IP. I prefer blocking the user agent :)
