Proving ownership of iPod Touch beyond reasonable doubt.
An iPod Touch owned by one of the little darlings is under disputed ownership (lost, found, given back, "hey, that's my ipod" from other kid, handed in again until dispute settled). Because it has buttons, I've been dragged into it.
Ways ownership can be proven that I've found so far:
1) Serial number on box / receipt / invoice.
2) An iTunes backup of the device from before it went missing (contains serial number).
Now, here's where I'm unsure. If the device is registered with Apple to an iTunes account / email address, is it trivial to register the device with another iTunes account / email address or does the current owner/registered user have to renounce ownership?
Bear in mind that there's been sufficient time between the disputed claim and it being handed back for the device to have been wiped and restored. Not suggesting that's happened, just that the device can't be trusted as evidence.
