Yep. Will the same occur when copies of watermarked books appear though? It's become increasingly common for people to receive letters with flimsy evidence saying pay X or we take you to court (for downloaders based on IP), the same could apply to the source of any book, will anyone want to risk the cost of going to court to show they didn't upload it?
