Definitely not. It is an organisation that does not care at all about 
its public image in the field of public policy. Quite exceptional, I may 
add.

Currently it is one of the US key companies that target the EU personal 
data protection reform.

Of course there are exceptions to the scheme, e.g. an ip enforcement 
case in Russia a few years ago to which the company applied very 
professional damage control.

Best,
André
