Amnesty shames Microsoft, Google, Yahoo

Microsoft Corp., Google Inc. and Yahoo Inc. have breached the Universal Declaration on Human Rights in colluding with China to censor the Internet, Amnesty International said on Thursday.

The three publicly traded companies are ignoring their own stated commitments which in Google's case includes corporate motto "Don't be evil" and are in denial over the human rights implications of their actions, the group said.

"All three companies have, in one way or another, facilitated or concluded in the practice of censorship in China," London-based Amnesty said in a report. Amnesty accuses US firms over China Web censorship - Jul. 19, 2006
