Nah, there will still be sales. It may only be the "click here to donate" type of sale, but that's still income.
Think people won't pay for what's available for free? Look at the bottled water industry. They'll pay for convenient packaging (which, in the case of ebooks, may mean "nice format" and/or "download from a site I already visit") and sometimes from brand loyalty.
