Lobbyplag

Website that says they use plagiarism software to compare text in politicians’ amendments and lobbyists’ proposals to find out if the amendments contain language copied from companies and industry groups. They’ve published a list of similar texts with politicians’ names and companies’ names. By necessity, the website is highly multilingual.

Lobbyplag.eu says its creation was motivated by the debate around EU data protection reform (with ~4000 amendments apparently inspired by lobbyists from every side of the issues and all corners of the world so far). Lobbyplag is also on Twitter.
