Yahoo Accused in Jailing of 2nd Chinese Internet User

I was just reading news at Reuters and came across one interesting one. "Yahoo Accused in Jailing of 2nd China Internet user."

This is the second time it has happened involving Yahoo. Based on the report, Yahoo submitted information to the Chinese government upon request that led to the arrest of an "Internet writer." The person was sentenced to 8 years in prison. To my understanding it happened in 2003.

Recently, Google cooperated with Chinese Government in censoring its site in China. Yahoo, and MSN also cooperated with the Chinese authority.

I think it all boils down to business. China is growing at a very fast pace, and its in second place as Internet users, so there is lots of potential.
