This seems to assume that when a crack is announced, all revenue stops. This would appear to be false. When cracks are announced in such systems, normally revenues aren't strongly effected. C.f. DVDs.

However, the money spent in trying to enforce control comes straight from the bottom line and is therefore limited if they want to stay profitable in the long run. True, they do have deep pockets, but they could be nibbled to death by ducks as they are very big targets and the ducks are small and have wings.
