Thought Experiment: Where Are The Bank Shots?

So if we assume that incumbents will seek to block and/or coopt change that threatens their business model, what are the ways to circumvent this in policy. That is to say, where are the bank shots?

For example, suppose I created an incentive to release code under a public license of defined characteristics, or to place works in the public domain or under a creative commons-type license of defined characteristics. This would have a significant impact on the ability to create certain types of public media.

Where are the bank shots in public policy? Not the boring idea of manipulation of the tax code for a direct effect. Where would we produce very interesting and useful indirect effects?
