1. I know

 

A few people involved in the bootleg industry back in the day. They'd buy up film prints of rare Asian movies that had US interest, transfer them to a master and then print them to VHS and DVD.

Those were then sold to consumers through places like Tower Records and Best Buy.

The people involved even went as far as partnering with a HUGE media company before the whole business died thanks to the internet.

I know they make hundreds of grand though, stealing movies, in about 5 years. And never got caught.
