    Yahoo pays up

    On Nov. 13, Yahoo (YHOO) decided to pay: It settled a lawsuit with the families of imprisoned journalist Shi Tao and political dissident Wang Xiaoning, both of whom were given 10-year sentences after the Internet company turned over information—from personal e-mails and anonymous posts on Yahoo message boards—to the Chinese government.

    It's the least they could do, EFin' weasels.

    Although they are offering to pay a sum of money, one must also ask just how long will they stall before actually handing over any money at all.?

    Usually big corporations like that say they will pay out, but it takes forever before you start seeing any type of monies appear.

    Being as how I am a life member of the IWWWPS (International World Wide Weasel Protection Society)

    The doe and four kittens appeared at about 200x............. followed by a weasel................

    I did represent my club, my county, and my country back then

    In a way Yahoo! are in an unenviable position.

    The information they provided is no more than they would have had to provide to the Feds or even the RIAA/MPAA.

    The real problem is so called democracies turning a blind eye to China because we are getting stuff manufactured by them for peanuts?

    I questioned Yahoo and Google going in to China to do business. Its like going into Nazi Germany and then expressing surprise when you are asked to help round up Jews.
