On China and Yahoo

By - February 13, 2006

Over at NPR, Xeni of BB has a take on the Yahoo story featuring my colleagues at Berkeley, Xiao Qiang and Orville Schell. Worth a listen.

Update: Yahoo is asking for a coalition of the willing on this issue, SEW reports.

    Yahoo attempting to form a coalition of the willing is brilliant politics. They are taking full advantage of the flak Google is taking for their China policy and deflecting the damage done to the two poor bloggers in China.
    Both are serving the same (China) market but Yahoo is trying to imprint on everyone’s mind that Google is the evil entity.

  2. Also worth reading in the Li Zhi case is the translation of defense documents at EastSouthWestNorth suggesting the Yahoo materials were never presented in court. Yahoo did provide information, but it wasn’t used in the trial. The Standard provides additional details.

    Yahoo has asked for a broad co-operation by commecial media, so is the battle about bad press concerning Censorship open. Let them fight the Chinese Censorship restrictions set on the Web.
