How Does Big Tech Cheat and Steal?

Summary:
Last night on his show on Fox News Channel, host Tucker Carlson interviewed Colorado Congressman Ken Buck. Buck was critical of high-tech companies, as is Carlson, and was pushing for new antitrust legislation. But that’s not what this post is about. Twice in a 3.5 minute interview, Buck claimed that high-tech companies cheat and steal. (At the 1:00 point and again at the 2:28 point.) Buck didn’t specify how. A journalist worth his salt would have asked how. But Tucker didn’t. Here’s my question to commenters. Do any of you know how big tech cheats and steals? Please give details.
