Clone rails hurt Madbull because they paid to license the trades from real steel rail companies. So hurting Madbull is OK?? Does the real steel rail maker also hurts? Yes.
I am sure that at the end of the year, sales losses incurred by Madbull are factored into the annual license fees and the real steel rail companies also take a loss as well. I don't think Madbull pays for the full annual fees if half of their sales went to the cloners.
