Proposed law targets tech-China cooperation

Declan McCullagh reports: "Proposed law targets tech-China cooperation."

After Senate hearings where the big US tech cos. including Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google and Cisco were criticised for facilitating the abuse of civil liberties in China, there is now a bill, called the Global Online Freedom Act of 2006, being proposed to limit these activities. Don't bet on it surviving too long, particulary not in its reported current state.
