A position/argument on a downstream effect of piracy where actual physical loss can/could/might be found:
Tax able profits mitigated against the value of pirated product.

Company has a product that is successful in sales and also very heavily pirated. They are able to argue the level of piracy as a measurable $ amount and are allowed to mitigate their tax bill as a % of that amount as a loss.

The society that would have benefited from that tax amount now have less $'s.

The tin foil hat wearing members of teh internets have even proposed this as a reason why a company might allow/encourage piracy to improve their taxable situation.
