Should an industry be attacked for something they haven't yet done?

Lawrence Lessig has engaged in piracy promotion in the form of civil disobedience. At that point, I stopped listening to his antics. He is, in this article, fortune telling - the record companies haven't done anything yet. It is clear that people who pirate music are breaking the law. It is also clear that the record companies not only have the right, but the legal responsibility to defend copyright infringement.
I am all for legal countermeasures. I don't see anything in this or any of the other articles on this subject other than conjecture on what might be possible, and what amongst those possibilities might be illegal.
I will be the first one to pipe up if the labels do something afoul of the law - my stance on not breaking the law, but changing the law, goes both ways.
