[ars technica] 37% of P2P users say they'll ignore disconnection threats

ISPs have hoped that 70 percent of file-swappers would pull down the Jolly Roger after they receive a mere notice. New research suggests that only 41 percent will stop; the rest require tough sanctions, and even disconnection won't stop many.

But most Internet users aren't sharing music at all; even the IFPI's own numbers show that only 18 percent of Europeans engage in any file-swapping. So the real question is not how all Internet users will react, but how the file-swappers will react.
