Do Manufacturers Care If Their Resellers Are Double Dealing With The Competition?

Will/can they drop you for becoming a partner with the competition?

After considering Dwayne's Axis - Hikvision dilemma of "Should I Pay or Should I go Now?", I was wondering if a top-tier company like Axis or Avigilon ever indicates displeasure when a partner starts to migrate to a lower cost competitor?

Or even will end the relationship so as to make the line more exclusive.
