When companies rip off their customers there usually is an army of lawyers eager to sue them into oblivion. Actually even when they really have done nothing wrong. Even if that doesn't happen, they won't stay in business very long.
With Inkmesh, etc., it usually is very easy to get the best deal on any ebook, and if you feel the prices are too high --- just don't buy, Even if the above were all true, then I don't think bad behavior by others should be a justification to lower your own standards.
