"A CHINESE journalist has been arrested for subversion after Inspector Knacker of Bejing managed to get hold of some of his Hotmail emails to the "Land of the Free". The mails were published in the US under the pseudonyms of "Night Wolf" or "Wolf Howling in the Night". Li Yuanlong, 45, works for the Bijie Daily in the southwestern province of Guizhou. He wrote essays on unemployment and rural poverty to US-based news portals Dajiyuan and Boxun which he filed by Hotmail. It is not clear how the Chinese authorities got hold of the emails. Microsoft is saying nuttin and so far neither has Bejing...."

Yahoo Tied to Jailing Of Third Chinese Activist
- http://www.techweb.c...9&site_section=
April 19, 2006
"Reporters Without Borders, an international group dedicated to freedom of the press, said on Wednesday that Yahoo Inc. helped Chinese authorities in jailing a pro-democracy activist, the third dissident sent to prison on information gathered from the Internet portal. In linking Yahoo to the jailing of Jiang Lijun, the advocacy group called on the Sunnyvale, Calif., company to remove its email servers from China. Information gathered from Yahoo Web mail was used to convict Jiang, the organization said. "It is the only way to avoid taking part in the current crackdown against journalists and democrats," the Paris-based group said. Yahoo said it was unaware of the Jiang case, even though Reporters Without Borders claimed to have met with Yahoo executives on April 10. "Let us make clear that we condemn punishment of any activity internationally recognized as free expression, whether that punishment takes place in China or anywhere else in the world," Yahoo spokeswoman Mary Osako said in an email. "While we absolutely believe companies have a responsibility to identify appropriate practices in each market in which they do business, we also think there is a vital role for government-to-government discussion of the larger issues involved"... In sticking with their we-have-no-choice defense, Internet companies have called on the U.S. government to pressure Chinese officials to loosen their restrictions on speech. Yahoo, however, has been taken to task by advocates for its role in the jailing of three Chinese dissidents. In the latest case uncovered by advocates, Yahoo provided information that helped identify Jiang Lijun, who was sentenced to four years in prison for subversion in November 2003 for his online pro-democracy articles, Reporters Without Borders said...

Chinese Internet writer charged with subversion
- http://tinyurl.com/gg2rl
Apr 27, 2006
"A Chinese Internet writer has been charged with attempting to "subvert state power" for backing a movement by exiled dissidents to hold free elections for a new democratic government, his lawyer said on Thursday. Yang Tianshui, 45, faces up to 15 years in prison for posting essays on the Internet supporting the "Velvet Action of China", Attorney Li Jianqiang said by telephone... The trial of Yang, who has been in custody since last December, is due to be in Nanjing, capital of the eastern coastal province of Jiangsu, in May. Prosecutors could not immediately be reached for comment. If convicted, Yang, a member of the China chapter of International PEN, would be the second writer to be jailed this year.
At least five writers were jailed for up to 10 years last year as part of a government crackdown on free speech, according to the China chapter of International PEN, an association founded in Britain in 1921 to defend freedom of speech. Yang was also accused of illegally receiving overseas financial assistance and plotting to form the Jiangsu and Anhui provincial chapters of the outlawed China Democracy Party, the lawyer said. Yang has already served 10 years in prison for "counter-revolutionary" crimes, or subversion. He was released in 2000."

Yahoo cited in jailing of China Internet writer
- http://tinyurl.com/lossd
Apr 28, 2006
"Yahoo Inc. has been cited in a Chinese court decision to jail a dissident Internet writer for 10 years for subversion in 2003 -- the fourth such case to surface implicating the U.S. Internet giant... The case is the latest in a string of examples that highlight the friction between profits and principles for Internet companies doing business in China, the world's number-two Internet market. Web search giant Google Inc. has come under fire for saying it would block politically sensitive terms on its new China site, bowing to conditions set by Beijing. In December, Microsoft Corp. shut down a blog at MSN Spaces belonging to outspoken blogger Michael Anti under Chinese government orders."

"Today at Yahoo's annual stockholder meeting, Amnesty International USA, an activist shareholder of Yahoo's stock, will challenge the company to uphold human rights in its operations in China. AIUSA will call on the company to publicly demand the release of internet dissidents jailed in China for peacefully exercising their freedom of expression rights. Tens of thousands of AI members have already written to Yahoo's CEO, calling on the company to push for the release of Shi Tao, a Chinese journalist now serving ten years in prison for sending politically sensitive information in an e-mail using a Yahoo account. Yahoo also provided information to the Chinese government that could have contributed to the conviction of Li Zhi, a civil servant who was jailed for eight years in 2003 after posting comments that criticized government corruption... Leading US internet companies, including Microsoft and Google, have made similar concessions to the Chinese to help with online censorship. Last week, Cruz addressed shareholders at the Google annual meeting, where co-founder Sergei Brin seemed to dodge questions about Google's conduct by pointing the finger at Yahoo for helping put Chinese netizens in jail. Cruz added, "The bottom line is that none of these companies operating in China have figured out ways to ensure their customers get all the information and privacy online that they are entitled to. The leaders of these companies are supposed to be the smartest and most innovative thinkers in the world today. Is bowing to an abusive regime really the best they can do?"..."

Yahoo Defends China Cooperation
- http://blogs.wsj.com...na-cooperation/
May 31, 2006
"Yahoo’s Terry Semel faced tough questions from Walt Mossberg — and the audience — over the search company’s decision to comply with requests for user data from the Chinese government, which has used the information to pursue dissidents... Mr. Semel went on: “I don’t think any one company is going to change a country, and I dont think any one industry is going to change a country.” One attendee asked Mr. Semel if Yahoo would have cooperated with Nazi Germany the same way it has with China. His response: “Yahoo has a basic obligation not to have a point of view on basic content, and to present content … and aggregate things and to allow people to make their own choices. I don’t know how I would have felt then.” He added, “I don’t feel good about what’s happening in China today. I don’t feel good about some of the things that happen in our own country.”... He defended Yahoo’s cooperation with data requests from U.S. authorities, adding that he “couldn’t understand” why Google balked at turning over information about user searches. He singled out the spread of child pornography, in particular, as a reason companies like his should cooperate with “legitimate” subpoenas. “The better job we do in making the Internet a safer environment, the better it is for growth of the Internet,” he said."

Brin Says Google Compromised Principles
- http://apnews.myway..../D8I33T2G0.html
June 6, 2006
"WASHINGTON (AP) - Google Inc. co-founder Sergey Brin acknowledged Tuesday the dominant Internet company has compromised its principles by accommodating Chinese censorship demands. He said Google is wrestling to make the deal work before deciding whether to reverse course. Meeting with reporters near Capitol Hill, Brin said Google had agreed to the censorship demands only after Chinese authorities blocked its service in that country. Google's rivals accommodated the same demands - which Brin described as "a set of rules that we weren't comfortable with" - without international criticism, he said. "We felt that perhaps we could compromise our principles but provide ultimately more information for the Chinese and be a more effective service and perhaps make more of a difference," Brin said. Brin also addressed Internet users' expectations of privacy in an era of increased government surveillance, saying Americans misunderstand the limited safeguards of their personal electronic information. "I think it's interesting that the expectations of people with respect to what happens to their data seems to be different than what is actually happening," he said. Google has battled the U.S. Justice Department in court seeking to limit the amount of information the government can get about users' Internet searches. It also says it has not participated in any programs with the National Security Agency to collect Internet communications without warrants..."

China Jails Reporter Over Essays on Graft
- http://sfgate.com/cg...;type=printable
July 13, 2006
"A Chinese reporter who posted essays on foreign Web sites criticizing the ruling Communist Party was sentenced Thursday to two years in prison on subversion charges, his lawyer said. Meanwhile, a reporter who was convicted in a case that caused an uproar after Yahoo Inc. handed over e-mails to Chinese prosecutors has appealed and asked to be released to see a doctor, a human rights monitoring center said. Press freedom groups say China is the world's leading jailer of journalists, with at least 42 behind bars, most on charges of violating vague subversion or security laws. Li Yuanlong, a reporter for the newspaper Bijie Daily in the southern city of Bijie, was detained in September after posting essays on foreign Web sites. Li was convicted by the Bijie Intermediate People's Court of "inciting subversion" and sentenced to two years, said his lawyer, Li Jianqiang, who is no relation. Foreign journalism groups had appealed for Li's release. His lawyer said Li pleaded innocent at his 2 1/2-hour trial in May. Li's essays, written under the pen name Ye Lang or "Night Wolf," included "On Becoming an American in Spirit" and "The Banal Nature of Life and the Lamentable Nature of Death." They were published on Web sites that are banned in China, including Boxun News, the Falun Gong-affiliated Epoch Times, ChinaEWeekly, and New Century Net, according to earlier reports.
Meanwhile, reporter Shi Tao, who was sentenced last year to 10 years on charges of leaking state secrets, has appealed and asked for release to see a doctor, said the Hong Kong-based Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy. Shi, 37, has contracted a lung condition and a skin disease while in prison, according to his family. An employee who answered the phone at the High Court in Hunan province, where the Information Center said Shi's appeal was filed, said he had no information on the case. Shi was accused of revealing the contents of a secret official memo about media restrictions. Journalism activists criticized Yahoo Inc. after it emerged that the company turned over e-mail from Shi's account to prosecutors."

Amnesty accuses US firms over China web censorship
- http://tinyurl.com/lbdpv
July 20, 2006
"BEIJING, (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp, Google Inc and Yahoo Inc have breached the Universal Declaration on Human Rights in colluding with China to censor the Internet, Amnesty International said on Thursday. The three publicly traded companies are ignoring their own stated commitments -- which in Google's case includes corporate motto "Don't be evil" -- and are in denial over the human rights implications of their actions, the group said. "All three companies have, in one way or another, facilitated or concluded in the practice of censorship in China," London-based Amnesty said in a report. "All three companies have demonstrated a disregard for their own internally driven and proclaimed policies. They have made promises ... which they failed to uphold in the face of business opportunities and pressure from the Chinese government," it said. "This raises doubts about which statements made by these organisations can be trusted and which ones are public relations gestures"..."

'Concluding' their operations in godless China would be wonderful. That is 'not' what has happened in the case of these godless companies. 'Collusion' ('colluded', not 'concluded') is what is happening. That's because the capitalist class has sold it's collective soul for temporary (at best) life and prosperity.
** $11.5 trillion, globally sourced, reside in offshore tax havens (used by the rich, corporations, terrorists, corrupt leaders), while 'leaders' whine that they can't afford social spending! **
