From Reuters (link)

Inc. has been cited in a Chinese court decision to jail a dissident Internet writer for 10 years for subversion in 2003 — the fourth such case to surface implicating the U.S. Internet giant.

Wang Xiaoning, born in 1951, was convicted of the charge of “incitement to subvert state power,” the New York-based watchdog Human Rights in China (HRIC) said in a statement.

Evidence cited in the verdict included “information provided by Yahoo Holdings (Hong Kong) Ltd. stating that Wang’s “aaabbbccc” Yahoo Group was set up using the mainland China-based email address [email protected],” HRIC said.
