The process you're talking about is called "geolocation", and it's only ever a best guess.  You can't get to a physical street address, but you can usually get to a town, or ZIP Code.  There are several companies that offer the service, and I've included links to a few of them.  Links do not imply endorsement.

I'm not sure what you mean.
@ukerandi, as I said before, there's no such database (except maybe the NSA/FBI/CIA). YOU WILL NEVER GET THAT INFO! You may or may not get an approximation through geolocation services, but you CAN NOT TRUST THAT (as you found out, it was the ISP info you got in your own test)

Geolocation services are perfectly fine if you know the IP in question. They won't give you an exact location (and rightly so), but they can give you a pretty good approximation within a few miles. That said, if this is not someone from within the company, you will likely never know who this is without it being elevated to the proper authorities.
