Actually, they're performing a service. You don't pay them for the copy, you pay them for the work they do.

When you buy a personal copy of something there are all sorts of things you, personally, can do with it, but the only people allowed to make money off a copyrighted work are the copyright holders.
I've said it before: sane copyright legislation will allow you to outsource that work. You may make a copy for your private and personal use? You should be able to pay somebody to do that for you. It's like, you know, having somebody rip your CDs for you.
