MercuryNews reports Yahoo accused in dissident's arrest.

Yahoo Hong Kong provided electronic records that led to the conviction of dissident Li Zhi, according to Reporters Without Borders, which advocates on behalf of journalists.

Yahoo spokeswoman Mary Osako said Yahoo Hong Kong would not have had access to Li's Chinese account and that it never releases information to the Chinese government. Osako said the company was looking into whether Yahoo China had released this information.

But this guy now got eight years! I spoke with one of my employees who is big into this Chinese government advocacy thing and he is confident that Yahoo! served up the data.

Anyway, we have forum discussion on this topic at DigitalPoint Forums.
