While I don't disagree with your statement, how can they possibly create a product that competes with something that's free, always going to be easier to obtain, comes out months before the american release, and possibly be of higher quality (for example gurren lagann in 1080p)?
They're fucked because it's better and it's free. Take a look at the download numbers for popular shows... last year, Claymore easily garnered almost 80k downloads per episode, Lucky Star getting around 60k for it's most popular eps, Gundam 00 is averaging around 30-40k downloads per ep as I check this.
Forty thousand fucking people is not a small number. That's forty thousand people who already saw the show months before it ever comes out officially in the states.
Now, there's an unofficial study by a game company that basically found out that out of every thousand people who pirate their game, one person goes on to actually buy it.
Lets apply that to these kinds of numbers. If 60,000 people downloaded and watched Lucky Star, only a mere sixty will go on to buy it.
Time to think of a new revenue model, guys.
