Google Has Lobbyists in "at least" 10 European capitals

[we are now back from vacation. Expect a larger post soon].

excerpt: “In a preemptive move, Google in 2005 opened an office in Washington, and in March 2006, it hired lobbying firms. It recently also has recruited lobbyists in at least 10 European capitals. A company blog recently was launched devoted exclusively to public policy issues.”
