If only the EU and the US have those laws it would be really
better. That the right thing takes a long time doesn't mean you
shouldn't do the right thing.

I don't know how it is in other parts of Europe, but in my own
country, The Netherlands, it is really cleaner. There are elections at
the moment and there is only one party (which is also a new one)
accepting money from companies. All other parties don't except money
from companies (and we've about 4 or 5 parties with influence on the
politic, not only two like in the US). Before this elections, no party
accepted money from companies. They also tend to listen more to the
people than to companies (although a good economy is of everybody's
interest of course).
