That is unproven. For that to be true, you must prove that everyone who pirated the eBook would (and could) have purchased the real book.

If someone was unable to purchase the paper book, and downloaded the eBook, there is no reduction in sales.

From what we've seen, the vast majority who "pirate" either wouldn't have purchased the paper book, or did purchase the paper book as well.
