ISPs not effective cops?

When I have the time, I'll read it more carefully, but the research is interesting. If it is proven that ISPs are not effective cops, then there is a practical for forbidding them to act as cops, independently of human rights issues.

"Research Paper Shows How Useless It Is To Require ISPs To Be Copyright Cops" (TechDirt, 18 February 2009). The post refers to an article in Computers and the law available on SSRN from Adams and Brown (the later I wrote a post about on 5 February 2009 Transparency in cybercrime reporting/filtering of content)
