So they DO steal transfers from other people. Is that even legal? Or do the people they're stealing from just not give a rat's ass?

Legally, under US law, a new copyright requires creative acts. Mere copying does not get a new copyright; the establishing case had to do with high-quality photographs of paintings, which are hard to get access to and complex to copy well, like movies. That is, I'd say it's well-established that a simple transfer gets no copyright. No matter how much work you put into making a better copy, as long as it's simply a better copy of the original, there shouldn't get a new copyright. A court suit might get somewhere, but the precedent is against them.

Although the company that made the restored version could sue'em over the breaking of the copy-protection on their DVD...
