I can certainly see the ISPs point

...after all, would this legislation "feature creep" it's way to requiring the Post Office and every parcel courier service to open up and examine every item they move to make sure it's not drugs or counterfeit? Because that's what the rights holders are demanding the ISPs do. There are costs, sometimes significant costs, in doing this but no sign of the rights holders offering to pay for this service they are demanding. After all, their is a free investigative service they can use to check this out. They are called Law Enforcement and I'm sure they would be more than happy to investigate any allegations that are made with good legal standing :-)
