Or they can find ways to break the feeds of illegal pirate material without stopping legal feeds.
All they have to do is break the torrent feeds and you will have to restart them every few minutes if you want to download the torrents
Software is not like gold, it is like fire. You don't lose anything when you share your software. It takes nothing from you.

Simply block all IP addresses that start with this ISPs numbers. Bingo - end of story. Even if this was only done in the States that would mean an end to access to most of the things they are after. This can be done in the backbone(s) and the satellites and this ISP could do nothing about it.
Adobe products are pirated heavily, for example, and they still make money hand over fist, and their products are *ridiculously* expensive. They're not even the high-end either. The more obscure, the rarer it is. With specialized software, comes specialized people that require it, and their careers and hobbies lend them to buying it anyway, or having it loaned to them.
