Yahoo turns to Washington for help on China – Reuters

From Reuters (link)

Inc. said on Thursday it was seeking the government’s help in urging China to allow more media freedom, after reports linking information it gave to Chinese authorities with the jailing of a dissident.

Last month, the Internet media company was cited in a Chinese court decision to jail an Internet writer for 10 years for subversion in 2003 — the fourth such case to surface implicating Yahoo.

Yahoo Chairman and Chief Executive Terry Semel, speaking at an event, said it had no choice but to comply with local laws and did not have the power to change Chinese policy.
