Question Description

This is a business mgmt case(Yahoo in China) , needs about 1800 words analysis.

This is a part of this case:


journalist and democracy advocate. Arrested for leaking state secrets in 2005, he was sentenced to ten years in prison. His crime? Mr. Shi had disclosed that the Communist Party’s pro- paganda department had ordered tight controls for handling the anniversary of the infamous June 4, 1989, crackdown on demonstrators in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square. A sad story, for sure, but it’s an all too familiar one, given China’s notoriously poor record on human rights. What makes Mr. Shi’s case stand out, however, is the fact that he was arrested and convicted only because the American company Yahoo revealed his identity to Chinese authorities.83

You see, Mr. Shi had posted his information anonymously on a Chinese-language website called Democracy Forum, which is based in New York. Chinese journalists say that Shi’s informa- tion, which revealed only routine instructions on how officials were to dampen possible protests, was already widely circulated. Still, the Chinese government’s elite State Security Bureau wanted to put its hands on the culprit behind the anonymous posting. And for that it needed Yahoo’s help in tracking down the Internet address from which had accessed his e-mail. This turned out to be a computer in Mr. Shi’s workplace, Contemporary Business News in Changsha, China.

A few months after Shi’s conviction, the watchdog group Reporters Without Borders revealed the story of Yahoo’s involvement and embroiled the company in a squall of controversy. After initially declining to comment on the alle- gation, Yahoo eventually admitted that it had helped Chinese authorities catch Mr. Shi and that it had supplied information on other customers as well. But the company claimed that it had no choice, that the information was provided as part of a “legal process,” and that the company is obliged to obey the laws of any country in which it operates. Yahoo co-founder, Jerry Yang, said: “I do not like the outcome of what happens

with these things . . . but we have to comply with the law. That’s what you need to do in business.”
