I am not entirely clear why it is illegal to provide subtitles. I understand a law not allowing to make a transcript of a book in a different language, but to also have that in place for a movie sounds odd to me. I guess it is also illegal to provide lyrics for music.
Their second angle is that they show ads on their site that apparently provide them a profit, which is not going to the copyright owners of the movies. That is really think as there isn't much money to be made from ads, especially if you have to deduct the cost of the server and bandwidth.

Computer n. A machine which flawlessly performs the instructions it is given, no matter how flawed those instructions may be.
