There are. They're losing. They should step up their game. They should try to do better. It's good for authors. And consumers.
It would be bad (and stupid) for authors to intentionally make decisions against their own interests just to keep a failing competitor in the game.
Have to say it: That's not capitalistic competition, that's communism, and it's never worked as an economic system on a large scale.
