Die Open Rights Group bloggt über einen Bericht des Auswärtigen Ausschusses im britischen Parlament zu „Ost-Asien“In diesem werden u.a. die üblichen westlichen Firmen (aka Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, Cisco) scharf kritisiert, die China beim Aufbau der Zensurinfrastrukturen helfen.
We conclude that the collaboration of Western internet companies in the censorship and policing of the internet for political purposes is morally unacceptable. We further conclude, however, that it is in the interests of Chinese internet users that as much information be available for browsing as possible. We recommend that the Government put pressure on the Chinese government to relax its censorship of the internet and its requirement for foreign companies to restrict the political content of their pages. We further recommend that the Government represent to the Chinese authorities the damage which is done to economic growth by continued restriction of the free flow of information.
