If it wasn't for black hats, there'd be no need for Fsecure and its competitors.
If it wasn't for black hats and the resultant need for the overhead of anti-virus scanners and secure code, there'd be no need for multi-core processors in regular desktops.
A strong malware industry and strong malware hobbiests are essential to support the AV industry, as well as to support the advanced obsolescence that drives the hardware industry.
It isn't Fsecure that will pay the economic price for malware distribution, it is computer consumers, computer service consumers, and service providers paying, through AV and hardware purchases.
So naturally AV companies and hardware manufacturers are not going to push for the criminal prosecution of malware creators and malware distributors.
