Some options:

Contact your local, state and federal legislators and convince them it's in
the public interest for them to draft legislation to outlaw this practice -
and hope among all hope that the end result resembles something technically
benevolent.

Contact ICANN/IANA and plead with them to stop assigning any more resources
to said ISP.

Publicize what said ISP is doing and let its customers decide if it's a
significantly deplorable enough practice for them to find another ISP.
