C libraries are a different model, the developer makes it available any way they see fit, you download and compile the library yourself, and you would need to pay just the library developer.

npm is different model, it's a centralised package repository, I guess they want to be in the middle earning their commission and that could be considered fair (unless they take e.g. 30%).
