When a journalist working for a Chinese news agency who also writes essays for overseas Internet forums is jailed after he sends his notes on a secret meeting to the website Democracy Forum using his personal email account, Reporters Without Borders accuses Yahoo! of informing on him. Yahoo! is hardly alone among Western technology firms who have received negative press about their complicity in aiding China's curtailment of individual liberties and human rights. Many executives from technology firms state they must abide by the laws of the countries where they operate, even if these laws go against American values regarding censorship.
Case from the 2008 Ethics Bowl National Championship.
