That arguement is tenuous, but so is yours- how are the minority hurt without unauthorized distribution of their works?
As the ariticle states, copyright was authorized in the constitution as a way of "promoting the public good". Unless you can point to specific harm suffered by the authors when their works are not distributed, I think that the public good trumps the demands of those authors in this case.
