Submission + - Yahoo! pleads guilty in Chinese journalist case (bbc.co.uk)

freakxx writes: " Yahoo! pleads guilty of supplying information to the Chinese government, which has lead to imprisonment of many journalists and pro-democracy activists in China, including Shi Tao and Wang Xiaoning.

In its 40 page response of the lawsuit filed by World Organization for Human Rights, Yahoo! acknowledged releasing information to the Chinese government. It further argues that it had to comply with the local law and it was compelled by the Chinese authorities to hand-over the information. Many people have criticized this decision saying that the organization has failed to keep up with ethics and it has more responsibilities towards international laws and humanity."
