Let's be a bit more clear here:

Google, the biggest company that benefits from the OSS community, whose motto is "don't be evil" were the ones that said "FUCK YOU" to us, after some time of allowing federation.

Of course, Facebook, another huge benefactor of OSS took advantage of the technology without ever even allowing federation, but that wasn't surprising at all, they pretend even less to not be evil.

Thankfully email already existed when these companies surged. If it was up to them, email just wouldn't work.
In fact, it is already becoming increasingly difficult to run your own mail server (please, no Clinton jokes).
