Congress Rebukes Microsoft's Chinese Censorship, Microsoft Fires Back

Congress Rebukes Microsoft's Chinese Censorship, Microsoft Fires Back

On Wednesday Republicans and Democrats in Congress rebuked Microsoft for participating in Chinese censorship. Bill Gates, company founder defends the decision, stating, "You've got to decide. Do you want to obey the laws of the countries you're in, or not?"

Rep. Smith, R-N.J.:"They [Microsoft] need to get on the right side of human rights rather than enabling tyranny, which they're doing right now." [Front page...]
