I'm not so sure about this statement.

They are losing hand over fist on crappy expensive movies that nobody goes to watch.

They are making a TON of money on DVDs. Could they be making tons more, sure, but they aren't losing money.

Numbers I found were ~$20B sales in 2005 vs ~$6B lost due to piracy.
