you cant buy a second hand download?

If it is second hand then they get the money from the original purchase so at least making something. If someone downloads illegally then they don't see a penny
#3
If you buy it secondhand...then someone has already bought it firsthand- so no one loses.
#4
If you buy secondhand some has already paid the manufacturer for it.

A downloaded item doesn't necessarily have to ever have been paid for.

There's also the point that if you buy secondhand from Game then the industry is benefitting. Plus people trading games will usually use the money to buy another game, so publishers benefit there.
