There is actually a service that they can use to do this parsing
for them:

Now, I bet Netflix has more than one IP address. It would not be hard
to adapt this service to help them do what they should be wanting to do.

See https://www.torproject.org/docs/faq-abuse#Bans for more details.

One of our next steps might be to find a useful technical contact
inside Netflix, so they can start doing this advocacy and education from
the inside.
