Re: Have the Big Tech Giants got too much power ?

That is the nature of a monopoly service. Nobody forces you to take a SBB train from Zürich to Bern, for example. But trying to organise your own would be next to impossible. What protects you from massive exploitation when you buy such a train ticket, though, is the regulatory environment. Exactly that is ineffective in your dealings with Big Tech.
I think they got protection they did not deserve: publishers. They aren't.

It's like barging in private talks and saying people can only 'vous-voyer'.
