I thought users/webmasters would be protected by law against such scams in my country but I found a loophole by reading the thread and it's links.
The position of the ISP is flawed but they will get it done. If you can't deliver a service (internet as in the information it contains) as a middleman (ISP) you should raise prices to he customer, not the provider (websites). The current proposal will be the end of internet as we know it, including torrents and activist organizations. Seeing this is in favor of The Powers That Be, my guess is this will come sooner or later as people just don't understand the impact and The Powers are quite scared of the lack of control they currently have. Freedom is a dream.
G will jump on this though, providing cheap unrestricted service and DPI in the ToS.

It's all about a few people having a chokehold on communication over the many. The dark ages were that way because only a few people had access to books, or were even taught to read. Then the printing press brought access to millions, and human knowledge and intellectual independence exploded, producing centuries of progress. The establishment said to itself "What to do? Too much free thought and wealth we can't control!"
Then elite forces decided to foster the notion that some publishers or journals were "respectable" or prestigious, while others were not, so all non-elite approved writings could be shut out of the prestige houses and spurned for not being mainstream. They also decided a century ago to formalize 'copyright' rules to ensure there would be no more public domain distribution of modern writings, thus placing more restrictions on free exchange and access to ideas.
Then came radio and TV technologies, which originally promised to open up communication access and creation to average people (e.g., thousands originally went on the air running their own amateur radio broadcasts). The elites shut that down right away with regulations creating expensive 'licenses' to operate a legal station anywhere, and progressively filled the airwaves with decidedly non-intellectual fare. Cable TV later offered more hope for diversity in communication, but then the successful independent stations got bought by the big corporations, such that now about 6-7 media companies own/control just about everything on the cable and satellite dial.
The internet is the last frontier of free discussion and equal access to alternative thought, free of corporate/elite filtering or marginalization. So naturally, those institutions have been trying to get the courts and bureaucracies to set up a tier system that gives preferred access to--you guessed it---the corporate/elite websites and portals. That's what (establishment controlled) Google's ranking wars have really been about, up to this point: G's marching orders are to put the big boy sites on page 1, park little guys on page 100, "but make it look like it's fair, or about the user experience." It's all about maintaining the chokehold.
