It is. Much harder with them than it is with music tech providers, although I do fully understand that many people on a budget will remain with Behringer in some ways given they have fewer options than others. I've been there, and I know.
As of right now I have half your list happily catered for in terms of 'vote elsewhere with the wallet' and they get nothing from me.
Of the other two, only one gets any direct revenue from me and it's minimal. To put it into perspective it would take 100 months or so for them to recoup the cost of a 2600 clone from me. The other I use indirectly for work and have no choice, although it's not my pocket that's paying them.
The world is not a world of absolutes. Do what one can. Reducing the revenue to a company you have distaste for is better than doing nothing. Nobody is a saint, the world makes certain things very hard to disengage from but it's worth remembering that small numbers add up.
