If the choice is to:

   (a) make money

   (b) put effort into what is in the interest of an individual user

What would people actually do?

What I mean by the word "significant" is what will make a corporation 
think thrice before it does anything against the interests of that 
group of people.  There were a lot of messages on the various mailing 
lists where the topic has been raised.  In my opinion there hasn't 
been any results up to now.
