    In this June 25, 2012, photo, the Supreme Court in Washington. Corporations and labor unions have been emboldened this election season to spend unlimited sums of cash. The Supreme Court is telling them to go full-speed ahead. The high court reaffirmed its controversial Citizens United decision from 2010, following a challenge to a Montana law that prohibited corporate spending in elections. But the decision issued Monday will likely mean a push for more campaign-finance deregulation. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)

    News about Facebook's IPO moves across the Dow Jones ticker in Times Square Thursday, May 17, 2012 in New York. Facebook priced its IPO at $38 per share on Thursday, at the high end of its expected range. If extra shares reserved to cover additional demand are sold as part of the transaction, Facebook Inc. and its early investors stand to reap as much as $18.4 billion from the IPO. The IPO values the company at around $104 billion, slightly more than Amazon.com, and well above well-known corporations such as Disney and Kraft. (AP Photo/Frank Franklin II)

Independent groups favoring Mitt Romney are launching TV advertisements in competitive states, providing cover against President Barack Obama's well-heeled campaign.

    FILE - In this Aug. 24, 2010 file photo, patrons enjoy a meal at a Burger King in Springfield, Ill. The movement by U.S. food corporations toward more humane treatment of animals experienced a whopper of a shift Wednesday, April 25, 2012, when Burger King announced that all of its eggs and pork will come from cage-free chickens and pigs by 2017. The decision by the world's second-biggest fast-food restaurant raises the bar for other companies seeking to appeal to the rising consumer demand for more humanely produced fare.(AP Photo/Seth Perlman)

Foxconn Technology's promise comes as Beijing is pushing foreign companies to share more of their revenues with Chinese employees. (AP Photo/Kin Cheung, File)

    A street vendor sells peanuts on a street side in central Yangon, in this file picture taken March 12, 2012. A race is on in the European Union to end sanctions against Myanmar in the coming weeks, a move to reward the country for its rapid shift towards democracy and open the way for European companies to gain a foothold ahead of competitors. No formal decision on softening or removing sanctions is expected until April 23, when EU foreign ministers will meet in Brussels to discuss the issue. But pressure is already building for quick decision-making, with major corporations lobbying their foreign ministries to reinforce the business case. REUTERS/Soe Zeya Tun/Files

    This Wednesday, March 7, 2012 photo shows the building on the Lower East Side of Manhattan where the elite hacker named "Sabu" lived in New York. The hacker that federal authorities say launched cyber-attacks on big corporations and despotic governments, then shocked the Web by informing on his accomplices, lived in a shabby public housing project where the elevator stinks of urine, and spent his time away from the Net caring for the children of an imprisoned aunt.
