Censorship is not reason enough to keep U.S. tech companies from doing business with foreign powers. That said, what Yahoo has apparently done in China steps way over the line. The company gave the Chinese government the draft of a dissident's e-mail, cause enough to send him off to jail for four years. Following some laws one might not agree with is one thing, but this level of privacy invasion, and with these consequences, should make Yahoo hang its head in shame.
