ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of Google to support a shareholder proposal of widening its political donation disclosure efforts. On the other hand, Google still opposes calls to resist censorship and keep the identities of users in authoritarian nations secret. Google thinks that the best way to attain free expression is balancing user privacy against obligations of complying with local laws and protecting its employees.
