Yahoo ceases service in China due to "challenging" business and legal environment


Recommended Posts

Quote

A spokesperson for the Internet pioneer told Reuters via email that in recognition of the increasingly challenging business and legal environment in China, Yahoo’s suite of services will no longer be accessible from mainland China as of November 1.

 

The spokesperson added that Yahoo remains committed to the rights of its users and a free and open Internet.

Wonder if more companies will do the same in the future.

The rest of the title had been cut off when I clicked this. I thought it had only said "Yahoo ceases service" which did not surprise me at all.

 

As to your question, will depend on the company and where they get money from. If China represents a sizable portion of $$$ for them, then no, I doubt it.

No surprise, for western business China is a hostile environment and while there is a huge population to tap into, the cost and overall effort to make it work is clearly not viable and business's go elsewhere.

Wait,they're just NOW admitting that China's making it hard to provide an open internet? (hitting my head against table) And these are the people I use for my e-mail.... 😱
