Google involved in new row over funding academic research
Posted on: 12 juillet 2017, by : Stuart Dredge

Google has found itself in a new row involving copyright, but this time round it isn’t music-industry bodies facing off with the company. Well, not directly.
The opponent in this case is a US organisation called the Campaign for Accountability, which published a report this week alleging that “Google has paid scholars millions to produce hundreds of papers supporting its policy interests, following in the footsteps of the oil and tobacco industries”.
The organisation’s ‘Google Transparency Project’ claims to have identified 329 research papers published between 2005 and 2017 “on public policy matters of interest to Google that were in some way funded by the company”.
