Google Goes Political

Google had opened an office in Washington DC with their first employee Alan Davidson today according to their blog. This location will help them "Defend the Internet as a free and open platform for information, communication and innovation". Net Neutrality, Copyrights and fair use, and intermediary liability are what they are interested in.

They are also looking outside of the U.S. according to the post as well.

just speculating but if we belive in rumors about Google Net it makes sense. if i can have internet everywhere i go for free, what i would choose?
this can break some interests, there colud be prostests and, um, actions so there must be defending mechanism too.
Google works in specyfic, young sphere and must take care they could do it in future.
