Next year we will launch a product, but we will have this policy that no big company will get a cheaper price then a small company,
One of the vendors of the e-commerce site I manage for one of my clients has this policy: You must charge the MSRP, but they don't enforce it and the big names don't abide by it, though my client got a notice for discounting their products 15%. I know my client has complained about this to the manufacturer, but to no avail.
Bottom line, no one is going to bite the hand that feeds them, whether it be Google or the manufacturers.
