Google Hires Lobbyist

Google reports via its official blog that it's hiring a lobbyist to help influence policy in such areas as "net neutrality," "copyrights and fair use," and "intermediary liability."

I have to hope this will be a good thing for most internet users, and people working with digital media in general. While I realize that Google has to pick its battles carefully, however, I have to admit that I'm a bit dubious about their proposed support for the Grokster decision (click here for commentary by Bill and relevant links), which they contrast from legal questions applied to their own products.
