It simply cannot be done. It doesn't matter how much profit there is in convincing distributors and their lawyers, it is impossible. And I don't mean difficult, I mean contrary to the fundamental nature of the universe.
The only option you have is persuading people, either by making your product as good as the pirated one, or by threatening them with force.

I see. That makes more sense now.
If only I'd known all along that when you said "artists" you meant "lawyers and lobbyists".
So you'd better repeat your mafiaa propaganda louder, because that makes it more true. Or go back and reinterpret what you said to try and making look less idiotic in light of the facts.
Toss a coin maybe.

Associations of artists count.
And lots of them were single people.
And I only went through the Es
Clearly a LOT of people disagree with you.
And they are content creators.
No one is so blind as someone who will not see.

You've provided lists of companies which support SOPA, can you name any actual artists--as in musicians, filmmakers, engineers, et al?
I personally know a few thousand, mostly musicians but plenty of the other (and obviously, there's a lot of cross-over) and personally, I know maybe 3 or 4. And, like I said previously, they tend to vacillate on their positions.
And please, spare me a list that includes such, uh, "musicians" as "Dixie Chicks" and the like, whatever the fuck that is.

Most content creators get paid by signing contracts with these companies.
So the company's motives and theirs coincide.
Why do associations of Artists not count?
If you will notice, in that list there are a lot of companies that represent the work of ONE artist, who in most cases would be the owner.
