You see, I have no problems seeing commodore as a main factor in the demise of the Amiga but the reasons I read anywhere on the net concerning piracy just doesn't make sense.

It doesn't make sense to compare the amiga piracy environment with it's console counterparts, and neither does it make sense to compare it with the 8-bit homecomputer era as during that time games wheren't big investments, games where mostly made by hobbyists and oftenly picked up by companies who released them under their name to make a little buck, which wasn't very financial demanding or risky. The investments where small while the output could be relatively large, with the emphasize on 'relative'. This emphasize gets in a world full of pain when you have to invest in an entire team of programmers, artists and commercial positions.
