so its all not admissible in court. also ip surveilance is generally so flaky that people are getting sued who had not downloaded anything from their ip adressess. dont know how this can happen as i think it should be straight process, but apparently it does

Intimidation tatic. Anyone who's got even a semi thick skin and a decent head on their shoulders would see right through this feeble crap.

To reiterate what I said earlier; it's not about sense, logic or even justice, it's about sending a message. Make people fear getting charged with some flimsy accusations as so to scare others into submission. Generally this is how it always goes with authority -- manipulation to get what they want.

I wonder how accurate this will be. As soon as I get my new HDD, I will have to download 120 GB+ worth of steam games, and I don't want to receive letters telling me I am pirating content when I am not.

The bolded part made me chuckle a bit

And no further action will be taken from the ISPs, however they will most likely pass on the information to the copyright holders for them to take action.

I guess that's what will be stopping people then...

That's a good point actually. No ISP is going to pass on that sort of information if they even still have it.
