Public shaming list for ISPs announcing other ISPs IP space by mistake

The italian courts seem to have told ISPs there to block ThePirateBay 
(bittorrent tracker), and this evening (CET) LLNW (AS22822) originated via 6762 (telecom italia) to what I presume is most of 

Basically same thing that happened when people tried to block YouTube a 
few months back (afghanistan?).

How do we hinder this in the short term? I know there are a lot of long 
term solutions that very few is implementing, but would the fact that 
these mistakes are brought up into the (lime)light by a public shaming 
list make ISPs shape up and perform less mistakes?

I am still waiting for a response from LLNW NOC on the issue.
