With the emergence of biotechnology companies, it was feared that they would impose silence about
proprietary results on their in–house researchers and their academic consultants. This constraint, in turn, would
slow the development of biological science and engineering.
Which of the following, if true, would tend to weaken most seriously the prediction of scientific secrecy described
above?
A. Biotechnological research funded by industry has reached some conclusions that are of major scientific
importance.
B. When the results of scientific research are kept secret, independent researchers are unable to build on
those results.
C. Since the research priorities of biotechnology companies are not the same as those of academic institutions,
the financial support of research by such companies distorts the research agenda.
D. To enhance the companies’ standing in the scientific community, the biotechnology companies encourage
employees to publish their results, especially results that are important.
E. Biotechnology companies devote some of their research resources to problems that are of fundamental
scientific importance and that are not expected to produce immediate practical applications.

The argument
"...they would impose silence about proprietary results on their in–house researchers ..", needs to be weakened.

The perfect solution is right there in D.
