You're still not getting it.

You pay $30 bucks for a copy of the bloopers. To whom does that go? Does it
go to the actors, whose images you are looking at, who worked day and night to
create both the drama and the errors? No, it goes to a pirate.

Profit IS being made. And that profit by all rights belongs to the people who
worked hard to make it, not to the vultures out there who prey on both the
shows and the fans alike.

These people profit off something they never made, that they have no legal
right to, that they illegally obtained. That you do not have a problem with
that is profoundly astounding and disturbing.
