A way to pressure developers of proprietary software is to refuse to
use that software.  If there is no way to report a bug to Ubuntu
without using Launchpad, then it is entirely appropriate not to report
bugs to them.  That's what I do.

As for the "benefit", it would be more productive to report that bug
to Debian (if present), which will propagate to all derived distros.
Reporting it to Launchpad typically benefits only Ubuntu users.
