indeed.
But I don't think it will be THAT bad. (at least not as you describe it)
Actually a few days ago the EU voted YES to addition 138, which is for the better.
That means they can't shut you off from the internet without a fair trial.

And my ISP mailed me a couple of days ago and said that they are going to do everything in their power to fight for the users rights and freedom.
IFPI demands to block The Pirate Bay. But the ISPs refuses.
We have the ISPs on our side

It definitely has a much higher chance of happening in the States than in Europe, people there are a bit too outspoken about virtual rights.

Like when Sweden passed a law that prohibited some forms of P2P there were huge protests in Stockholm and Gothenburg.
