There have been attempted actions against some Internet service providers in Australia for permitting their customers to continue to share music and movie files. I am not aware of any successful cases, others may advise, but I think that the ISPs just rolled over and closed the customers accounts, but I am relying on memory here and it may be flawed.
You might like to do a search on the Whirlpool forum for any details that are available. see
