You are missing the fact that only thanks to the goodwill on part of the ISP Gigablah even got to know of this whole issue affecting vgmdb. And the proposed law essentially says to the companies "you don't even need to notify your affected customers at all" so more of them will save the money and troubles involved if it passes. Amazon, MarkMonitor and Dyn already did.

HADOPI is comparatively unworkable only because it's not about closing down comparatively few websites, but about essentially randomly locking internet accesses thus affecting 100% of the population as the act of browsing always necessarily makes a local copy of copyrighted stuff being browsed.
