Censorship in China, Part I: Do You Yahoo? (Answer: No)

US internet companies with operations in China are getting a second chance at appearing before the US House Committee on International Relations, and public opinion is ensuring they're not going to miss it, like they did the first one.

Yahoo took a preemptive strike with a statement on their beliefs as a global internet company, basically saying "don't bother us with too many rules at home, we're busy enough complying with those of dictatorships abroad."

A bit too simple, if you ask me, but a nice discussion opener. Let's leave it at that.
