I think it's funny the Italians have turned the screws.
The real question Google never answered is: Why don't you share the split like everybody else?
Who benefits from the lack of transparency? Whose idea was it in the first place?
If it is higher than or the same as industry averages, Google would benefit from revealing it.
Personally I never really thought it was better or worse than the averages. I thought it was just a scheme to let Google swipe a bigger chunk if its stock ever got weak and it needed to make a big grab. Slick insurance policy.
