It is rather a different situation to the analogy you've used before of someone selling pirated DVDs - in that case, the movie producer is clearly losing money as a result of those pirated copies. Who is losing anything here?
Are you really saying that the copyright holders right to control distribution only should hold if he earn money on the distribution? The copyright holder is loosing since somebody does something against his will.
