A far better (and less WP:BITEy) outcome would be to get then to
support our mission, for instance by donating media, or encouraging
staff (I'm thinking of these at HQ, rather than low-paid servers) to
volunteer their time as editors and photographers.

We could also enlist them to encourage similar-sized corporations to
do likewise, and to sign up to ethical editing guidelines.
