DC and Marvel did a better job then the RIA at staying ahead of piracy (and more importantly going after the piraters with cease and desist order, not grandmas whose kids were just utilizing programs for millions of dollars)...
SD was irrelevant, hell I hadn't even heard of it until PAD got his panties in a twist. Until they start taking legal action against DCP, DC and Marvel are just looking the other way when it comes to piracy.
The digital revolution is a paradigm shift in income and the Comics companies have already shown that they are incapable of keeping up with the changes in printing and will easily fall on old gimicks to generate "different" (not new) avenues of revenue.
No doubt that someone is going to have to do it for the companies. DC doesn't seem to have a strategy and Marvel's reader is a joke for now. By the time comics do make it to e-readers though, Marvel is going to have a huge portion of it's back catalog digitized.
