"for being such a proprietary company"

perhaps you were just speaking casually, but there's nothing wrong or illegal with being "proprietary"... the problem is when a company uses its market dominance to _harm_ consumers and prevent competition.

nobody fines the auto maker or computer hardware+software for being the only one to manufacture certain parts for its product; but when the company so dominates a market that a predatory behavior inhibits the ability of others to function, that's where in theory a legal correction is called for.

Yes, I was just speaking casually. The term "such a proprietary company" includes things you mention above. That's why the "such as".

Thanks for the clarification!
