If you're seriously in to pirating, you don't do it from a raw connection. You're going through a proxy and you're making sure all your traffic is encrypted.

At best, this is going to collect casual "piracy" and, because it is so prevalent, ISPs aren't going to crack down that hard. Why would you piss off the people who keep paying you monthly? That's bad business.

Yeah, that's the stupidity regarding all this shite. How the fuck do they think groups like Razor, etc have been around for decades? Not by being stupid. Joe Average Consumer may pilfer a film or song here or there but that's fair play IMO given how much shitty stuff they've never got their money's worth for. 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.
