I personally think that companies with lobbies should be made to disclose
all their lobbying funding in all countries that they register to trade.
So the EU could know for example if a company had actively engaged in
subversive legislation targetting EU companies and sales so that their own
sales can be targetted with smart sanctions. More openness and more
knowledge is more power.
