Google lobbyists

Google is seeking to hire a network of lobbyists in capitals across Europe as it tries to shape debate over pressing internet policy issues, from copyright to online privacy. Google this month advertised for recruits in at least 10 capitals with a passion for “the expansion of a free and open internet”. The network will work on issues such as “privacy, freedom of expression, copyrights, competition and security, regulation of online content, advertising and technology”.The recruitment drive was not in reaction to criticisms, but simply reflected Google’s rapid growth, said Rachel Whetstone, head of Google’s European communications.

Thats probally normal for a corperation but I still find it a bit weird.
