Broadband services monitor illegal downloading?

Did anyone else know that this is going on?  Just the other day, I was informed that Century Link (my internet provider) can limit my access and use if they suspect illegal downloading.  My friend who works at a coffee shop says that Century Link has them on some sort of probation right now for too many customers illegally downloading.  So I did a quick search and came up with this:

Does anyone have any more information?  I’m just curious.
