In a grievance, what clout do you have if you can’t threaten legal action?

You’d be surprised at how effective we can be by just advocating on your behalf. Often we can be effective simply because a third party can achieve better results that someone who’s personally involved. When necessary we’ve used publicity (Writer Alerts, social media and writers’ forums, press releases, etc.), complaints to influential individuals and organizations (shotgun, escalation to upper management, regulatory agencies, industry organizations and journals, consumer complaint desks, Better Business Bureau, etc.), Small Claims Court (for breach of contract, not infringement), picketing and sit-ins, etc.
