Business practices reflect what is ironically called "business ethics", not to be confused with philosophical ethics, or any sort of morality or altruism. "That's business" or "business is business" better describes the reality of business practices. It's the nature of business to set their moral compass by what is legal, if the fines will cost more than the profits, and what can we get away with without the lawsuits costing us more than the net profits. Businesses will fire at will when able, close without notice to their employees when practical, and use bankruptcy as a money saver/maker, don't even start with the "vulture capitalists". As long as they aren't active nazis or molesters, I just figure every business is sleazy ... if they make a good amp or guitar, I don't look under the sheets. Anyway, I only buy used gear, and hardly that anymore.
