Here’s a quote from Ars Technica’s article on Yahoo’s involvement in the violation of human rights.
“Yahoo claims that it is simply following local law and that it has no choice but to comply with legal requests from the Chinese government if it wants to keep doing business in that country.”
Nothing like putting your profit and business agenda over human rights. It somewhat sad considering that larger companies like these are the ones who have the ability to truly help change the world. Unfortunately it seems the bigger a company gets, the more likely the chance to lose its soul in the blinding pursuit of the almighty dollar.
