I gotta say that, personally,  I think worrying about this is kind of silly. First, end-user connections don't have enough bandwidth to make sharing particularly appealing, especially in poor regions. Second, where it does happen, the ISP isn't really losing anything and it's not like they have some entitlement to the user not doing so. Third, addressing really isn't the hurdle that will stop this.
