So like just about every movie you've seen has their logo on it - do you get to the end credits see the MPAA logo and scratch your eyes out and say I just wasted my money!!!!

I pay Netflix to distribute content. The content created has paid into the MPAA and uses technology to ensure no one infringes. If Netflix is a distributor of content or essentially a dumb pipe why do they care what I do with the content after I receive it?

Netflix hasn't been a "dumb pipe" for years. They have been content co-producers since 2012 ("Lilyhammer") and producers since 2013 ("House of Cards").
