China: State Moves Against Internet Users Continues
As CaseForFreedom.org has informed its readers, Yahoo and Microsoft have signed a "Public Pledge of Self-discipline for the Chinese Internet Industry."

Reporters Without Borders says this "marks the end of anonymous blogging" in China.

Human Rights Watch analyzes the role of Internet companies in assisting Chinese curbs on freedom of expression.

Ironically, Boing Boing is reporting on Yahoo responding to the lawsuit involving the jailing of Internet dissidents Shi Tao, Wang Xiaoning, and Yu Ling. The World Organization For Human Rights USA is representing the dissidents who accuse Yahoo of providing their internet information to the Chinese government. Boing Boing is also reporting on the Chinese government's confinement of blogger He Weihua to a psychiatric clinic.

There is also some action in the United States Congress about banning United States participation in the upcoming Olympic Games in China over human rights and trade issues. The Heritage Foundation, which opposes a boycott of the Games in China, argues that the Games will provide an opportunity for the world community to pressure China into changing some of its policies.
