Barbara van Schewick, faculty director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society (CIS), denied accusations from a ProPublica article by Julia Angwin that Stanford accepts money from Google under the condition that it not be used for privacy research.
“The ProPublica story is inaccurate and we have notified the reporters of this fact,” Schewick wrote in a statement to The Daily. “Neither Stanford nor the Center for Internet and Society made any promise not to use Google money for privacy research, and Google-funded researchers at CIS/Stanford are not barred from working on any subject, including privacy.”
