expression on the Internet – and on companies to stop helping them do
I am sure Terry Semel feels the same way too Jeff.
The question, though, is whether playing by the rules of a goverment like China who censors its people does more harm than good.
I am still with Terry Semel on this one. Yahoo! leaving China is worse than staying and living with censorship.
