Some of Microsoft’s money goes into mobilizing political astroturf
campaigns. According to Corporate Watch UK, Microsoft has “established
phoney grass-roots groups, hired people to write opinion pieces for
newspapers and magazines, pose as ordinary citizens in various
Internet chat rooms, sponsored polls to make it appear they have a
groundswell of support, and have enlisted their stockholders and
business partners to lobby for them.”
