by doing the blocking at the ISP level they remove the need for the RIAA to
DOS any P2P nodes on their network. it also makes the ISP accountable for
any block so a call to their helpdesk of "i can't share my legitimate mp3s"
can be resolved locally rather then having to respond "please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org and don't hold your breath".
i don't think either solution is desirable but that's another story...
I'm not here. This isn't happening.
