Google's Board Objects to Anti-Censorship Proposal

Ben Charny writes on MarketWatch:

Google Inc.'s board of directors recommended Wednesday that the company's shareholders vote against a proposal to bar the company from any "proactive" censorship efforts.

The board's opinion came to light in materials Google filed with securities regulators concerning its May 10 annual shareholders meeting.

Google did not explain why its board recommends shareholders vote down the anticensorship proposal from the Office of the Comptroller of New York City, which is a trustee of pension funds that have invested in 486,000 Google shares.

A representative for Google did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment for this article.
