Lisa Ellman is only one of the many little hands in the service of Apple, the company that has swallowed up $ 5.5 million in lobbying during the first three quarters of last year. Among the areas in which Apple is trying to placate the federal political, we find the taxes and fees, confidentiality, copyright, immigration… The drones, it is less common.
