As long as the profit from doing shady things and lying is greater then 
the cost of settling a lawsuit, companies will be dishonest and do shady 
things. 

So, no, I don't believe threat of litigation is any barrier to how ISPs 
conduct their business. In fact, with how pro-business and 
fuck-consumer the current climate is from the govt, its just going to 
get worse.
