I don't think it requires going to court. This discovery is known as a "Norwich order", and while there's a burden of evidence to prove that the order is justified, it's not a "battle" and the ISP wouldn't be trying to argue against it.

There was actually a very recent SCC case [1] between Rogers and a copyright enforcer, where Rogers was appealing a federal court decision that Rogers itself had to bear the cost of fulfilling these orders. If that stood, it would give copyright enforcers carte blanche to pursue copyright suits against minor violators.

I don't know about your ISP, but I'm pretty sure my ISP would battle the hell out of anything concerning my privacy.

Yes, but Bahnhof is very much an exception in the world of ISPs. I'm not at all sure I would be able to rely on my ISP, Telenor Norway, to the same degree.
