I think this could potentially be a serious problem. Most likely it will result in significant backlash against ISPs and MPAA/RIAA, and I would not be surprised if either some FCC rules or federal legislation results. I wouldn't be too sanguine about that if the ISPs limited their 6 strikes policy to individuals, but if you have businesses facing punitive actions that may not even be justified, I can't imagine even this congress would sit on its hands. A major problem I have with this proposed action by ISPs is that the entertainment industry has a terrible track record at this stuff, and as pointed out, have issues many take-down request for content that either wasn't infringing or was protected by fair use.
