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

It's only "for naught" if their intention was to completely eliminate piracy. It's not for naught if their intention is to cut down on piracy. In the last, what, 5-10 years, it's gotten significantly easier to get illegal stuff than it used to be. Back when you had to use irc, ftp sites, newgroups, etc, there were a lot fewer people doing it. If - and it's a big if - they can once again make it more difficult, then that'll cut down fairly substantially. Regardless if the "serious pirates" can still get stuff.
