Yahoo didn't do anything different than what AT&T did in responding to government's investigative demands.

Journalists are not above the law.

Shi Tao violated China's security laws on classified information.
We have Similiar laws - Remember James Yee, Wen Ho Lee, Chi Mak?

AT&T helped our government tap Chi's home phone - now Chi Mak is rotting in jail for doing his job.

The supposed "state secret" IEEE document is in fact a public domain presentation Mak gave, and is availble to anyone in China on ieee.org:

Everybody is now talking about the coming of web2.0, but without the abolishing of internet surveillance by the Chinese security council how can we cherish the hope that we can freely communicate with each other via net?
Such famous websites as flickr and wikipedia have been blocked out by Chinese government, and even youtube has been partly censored.
The coming of web2.0 is bound to go with the progress of democratizing.
And I think further development of internet business in China should be based on the atmosphere of freedom.


Good to hear - keep the pressure on.

Poor Charles- grow up. One’s an apple and one’s an orange. And they’re both bad.

Charles Liu

If they're both bad, where's the lawsuit on behalf of Mak's family?

Where's the outrage?
