Chinese Internet vs. free speech – Carrie Kirby

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

Critics say that cooperating with governments to suppress free speech violates human rights, international law and corporate ethics. But what the experts can’t agree on is what the companies should do about it. The Internet — even with limitations — is generally considered a powerful democratizing force. If international companies withdrew from the Chinese Internet market, the result might mean even fewer chances for free communications there.
