However, as you said, serious pirates are going to take the necessary steps not to get caught so all this is for naught.

If they really WANT to catch you, they will catch you. You always leave a trail that can be followed, it's just a matter of someone being willing to pay for it to be tracked. Lulzsec and anonymous also thought they couldn't be tracked, and one by one they are being found.

You are never 100% secure or 100% anonymous on the internet.

Now, I doubt ISPs are going to go through that much effort to find some pirates, but on the flipside, they only have to monitor their own traffic, which substantially cuts down on the amount of investigation involved. But I don't think ISPs are going to do anything beyond the most cursory glance at their traffic. Why would they have to bear the financial burden so some cocksucker in LA can stay rich off his busted-ass business model?
