If I bought an iPod and iPhone from someone and It isn't registered on my account what do I do? It won't let me register it because, the person that previously owned it has it registered. and I bought it online so I don't know the person.

I bought an iPhone and 2 iPod touch's now the 3rd from a stranger, but since it was registered on someone else's name I cannot register them, The iPhone got stolen and so did 2 of my iPod touch's I bought one from Wal-Mart and it is registered, Tried tracking it but who ever has it needs to connect to the internet on it to be able to be tracked. Now my iPhone 4 I bought off someone it was not connected or nothing but I DID purchase things on it and It wont track on iCloud, I Need to Track it It's registered but it wont show up on iCloud and My Ipod that I Have Now Can't Be Registered because its registered on someone else's account.

Registering the iPod has nothing to do with FindMyiPod/iPhone working. See the following for get the Find to work
iCloud: Troubleshooting Find My iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac
Also, restoring the iPod means that you can no longer locate/contact the iPod via FindMyiPod.
Registering is not necessary and I would not worry about it.
