A US congressional panel has criticised internet firm Yahoo for not giving full details to a probe into the jailing of a reporter by Chinese authorities.
Good to see this response to Yahoo's appeasement of the Chinese gov, which i think Google at one point also secumbed to.
Mr Lantos added: "I do not believe America's brightest and best companies should be playing integral roles in China's notorious and brutal political repression apparatus."
Mr. Lantos, I do not believe America's government should be playing integral roles in China's notorious and brutal political repression apparatus.
Yet it does. Apparently, hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Whilst there is no law stopping these actions, companies have little defence against requests for this type of information (as in, I'm sorry we can't provide you this information as it would be an illegal action of a US corporation); and whilst there is no law permitting these actions, companies which undertake them are at a significant risk (later courts rule against such practices; need to pay significant compensation).
