Yeah, if somebody within range has an unsecured and broadcasting hotspot.
You wouldnt be able to subscribe to your own service but youd still be able to get onto somebody elses.
Unless some sort of mandatory security was enacted and anyone with a "banned" user using their connection were treated as enabling criminal activity.

Despite months promoting the rights of copyright holders with its Digital Economy Bill, the government has caused something of a furore after revelations that its recently crowdsourced campaign poster has breached copyright laws. "

I know that everything works by packets, but I think they would be able to check if you tried a connection to the website that have that file avaliable and let me use an example
(ISP can keep logs about all connections you made, so they would be able to to some filter and find out the users ... there are a lot of ways)

Korg trinity, you said:

Yes, this is easily done and people should learn to take responsibility for their own connections but, i like to download stuff and i'm really not comfortable with this. I don't want to be responsible for getting a neighbour in trouble with the new draconian law just because they are stupid and not tech savvy.
And anyway, once people start getting disconnected and/or fined, then i think its reasonable to assume that people will start to use WPA or WPA2 security in much greater numbers and thus, there goes yet another way to connect to the internet.
