The problem here is that using law against individuals with rules - and penalties - that are designed to address behaviours of companies is sure to lead to injustice. A friend just got a "three-strikes"-style e-mail from their ISP citing music I know they would never listen to as being in some way used in violation of copyright. What can my friend do? Presumed guilty, there's no recourse that is financially viable. Among all the other reasons three-strikes cannot stand as law is the fact that it is beyond the means of any individual to defend themselves and thus justice is unavailable.
We live in a world that prefers persuasive stories to irritating facts.
