Here is why I have lost all confidence in not only Elsevier but essentially all for-profit scholarly publishers: “But Elsevier bought Mendeley and SSRN, and they’re OK, aren’t they?” at https://svpow.com/2017/05/10/but-elsevier-bought-mendeley-and-ssrn-but-theyre-ok-arent-they/

Unfortunately, it's not a tax on innovation. Taxes go to governments, which spend the revenue on citizens (with greater or lesser efficiency, sure). In the end, tax money funds things like health and education. This money, though, simply accumulates in the pockets of bandits. A protection racket would be a much better analogy than a tax. It's a shakedown.
