But now, more people are challenging that idea, they have the means to actively challenge it, and they have the backing to do so, and this detracts markedly from the amount of profit that can be made by the big three.

The quicker this industry is torn away from the grasp of the major names, the better.
Problem is it will kill all the little guys (if it already hasn't) before the majors are "torn apart." As someone that was deeply invested in the indie movement (anti-major) movement of the 90s it is so sad to see what has happened to it.
