Now these are just thoughts so shoot me down if you feel like 
it....but..

ISP's make money from Bandwidth usage, it's therefore in 
there interest to let traffic go un-checked as in the end 
legitimate account holders will have to pay for it...

Wrong.  ISP's make money from subscriptions.  The ideal subscriber would
be someone who pays the $21.95/month (or whatever it is these days) and
*never* uses the Internet.  If you have 1000's of those, you could make
a tidy profit on a T1.  The more bandwidth a subscriber uses, the less
profitable their subscription is to the ISP.
