Microsoft revamps blogging policy – Jeremy Kirk

From Infoworld.com:

After outrage from many of its own employees over its abrupt censoring of a Chinese blogger, has formulated a new policy to deal with requests from a government that alleges posted material violates its laws.

The measures were detailed by Microsoft’s (Profile, Products, Articles) top lawyer, Brad Smith, at the Government Leaders Forum in Lisbon on Tuesday.

Smith said that Microsoft will only remove blogs when given proper legal notice, and even then, will only block access to that material within the country where it is deemed unlawful. The site will still be viewable from outside the country, he said.
