In theory this would apply also to GOG (and DOTEMU, let me add) customers: you can always download the game by yourself, install DOSbox by yourself and there you go, they would be out of business. Which isn't the case, luckily :-)
However, you raise an interesting point: emulator developers don't have the right recognition by those who should be grateful in the first place. There are a lot of business opportunities (imo) yet to be exploited.
