This is a business mgmt case(Yahoo in China) , needs about 1800 words analysis.
This is a part of this case:
SHI TAO IS A THIRTY-SEVEN-YEAR-OLD CHINESE
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.”
