Everything you are saying also applies to Music, and yet, magically, amazingly, DRM on music is dead dead dead and the market in purchased digital music continues to grow.
I don't know about other collectors, but I simply won't buy a copy of a movie I don't have physical control of, whether it's via download, physical disc, etc... and I have little faith in DRM laden mechanisms that might lose support down the road, rendering my collection worthless.
The pirates are going to pirate, regardless of what purchasers do... the problem is that the MPAA is completely 100% hung up on the idea that every downloaded pirated copy is a "lost sale" even when the pirate was never intending on buying anyway.
