Just because Skyrim is selling well doesn't mean it isn't equally getting pirated billion-fold. And I'm sure that Beth isn't exactly happy about that development, in spite of the success of the franchise.
This is because of the faulty view that 1 pirated copy = 1 lost sale, which isn't even close to true. Plenty of people pirate games that they can't otherwise afford, or that they would never buy at the price point asked for them (or any price point), or that they will buy later. God knows I've done all three, but I still spend at least a hundred euros a month (on average) supporting developers who release good games on PC.
