Report: Apple Spends Mere $500K Lobbying in Q2, Well Behind Google

Congressional lobbying disclosure reports for Q2 2012 have been made available, and they show that Apple lags WAY behind Google on the amount of money spent lobbying Congress.

From 9to5Mac:

Fortune’s Philip Elmer-DeWitt reported that “Google has outspent Apple nearly 10 to one.”

Elmer-DeWitt noted the bills Apple is giving the most attention to range from the Do Not Track Kids Act of 2011 to “issues related to the transportation of batteries.”

He said, “Given the latest kerfuffle about Apple’s temporary withdrawal from the Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool program a couple weeks ago, I was interested to see ‘EPEAT’ on the list.”

Google showed an active interest in environmental issues, with lobbying of issues pertaining to “renewable energy policies.”
