Sadly, no such a company has taken a stand against Apple, so... I work with what I'm given. 

I just don't wanna be that guy who comes back to tell everyone when Epic becomes that eventual top dog position that Apple is currently in. I just want the issue gone by the roots, rather than allowing another stem to sprout when another is cut off. 

That's a political issue and can't be solved by just capitalism. As it stands the only way to have improvement in our current system is to replace a bad monopoly with a slightly better one. Thinking some day a benevolent actor will emerge and wipe away all the bad monopolists is delusional. The reason is that it is not possible to gather vast amounts of wealth without acting immoral and stepping over corpses. To topple a powerful company you need to be powerful yourself and you won't become powerful by being ethical. The only other solution is political intervention.

So just sit back and be glad that at least something is happening. It's not like you can do anything about it anyway. In late stage capitalism there are no friends, just enemies of your enemies.

If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
