See the chilling vision of restrictions for payment processors, expanding the Alert System program, collecting data on rogue sites.
No more sites: A demand to sign up to stopping "distributing malware, abusively operating botnets, phishing, piracy, trademark or copyright
infringement, fraudulent or deceptive practices, counterfeiting or otherwise engaging in activity contrary to applicable law" on your new site.
Lower search results for site, better down notices for online storage service sites, automated filtering technologies... counting each infringing file downloaded, tracking repeat infringers.
Some interesting US efforts on going after internet pharmacies, credit card and banking controls, P2P tracking.
Some good details on legal alternatives for movies/tv shows.
