Abstract

The involvement of advertisers in the development of internet search tools raises issues concerning the integrity of information access. Vested interests already intrude in selection and ranking techniques, and it would be incautious to assume that commercial interests will adhere to ideals of open and equal access. Government and publicly funded initiatives that afford opportunities for collaboration with the private sector provide alternatives to the commercial model of development.
