News from the Net

Let's see if I can sum up this story and the back-news relating to it... So a circular is going around about the Chinese government censoring. A financial writer sent an email regarding it. Yahoo! told the Chinese government. The Chinese government, in an effort to put an end to the rumors of censorship, sentenced the man to 10 years in prison. The man is now suing Yahoo! for it. Of course, the Chinese government censors all photos on Flickr.
