They lose money from lack of future income.  Somebody getting a copy of something for free is far less likely to pay for it in the future.  For example, my brother use to buy movies all the time.  Then he got a plex server and started pirating them.  Guess how many movies he has purchased since?  0.  Those companies have lost his money in their revenue streams because he just pirates everything now.  He went from probably spending a couple thousand bucks a year to spending nothing.  Piracy obviously has an affect on companies bottom lines, no matter how you want to rationalize it to yourself.  

Your "brother"... riiiiight.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
