IRMA Threatens Irish ISPs

Blacknight has this response to a letter from the IRMA, with RIAA type threats demanding they take action against infringing users.

The letter explains that going through the courts is impractical because, ".. as a logistic matter they could only identify a finite number of infringers while meanwhile the infringement was going on wholesale."

I'm puzzled by this. Are the lawyers really suggesting there are an infinite number of infringers? If so, it is rather pointless them trying to pursue a few of them.

How can they get away with complaining that the courts can only deal with a finite number of infringers?
