The rest of the article goes on in similar vein. Note that the Government have laws to enforce the website blocking, but aren't going to implement them in the hope that the ISPs and the rights holders can come to an agreement on enforcement that is acceptable to both. In other words, they are trying to push the costs of enforcement onto the ISPs and rights holders. Don't expect either party to be happy about that.
As a rights holder, I'm already paying for it through the labor of hiring people to make DMCA claims. Content management may be the price the content industries have to pay to protect their products... but guess what, if the legislation and methods are actually effective, than those cost can be passed on to consumers in the same way manufacturing and shipping costs were previously.
Sometimes the cost of business just moves from one area to another.
