CNN reports that Yahoo has actually been cited for helping to jail a Chinese dissident. We reported the rumors that Yahoo has given data to the Chinese in early February. It seems as if that data has actually been used in a Chinese court to jail the Chinese dissident. Information provided by Yahoo Holdings (Hong Kong) Ltd. was used in the court case, specifically Wang’s Yahoo Group account “aaabbbccc” and email address bxoguhúyahoo.com.cn. The information delivered to the courts was not confirmed if it provided Wang’s identity or not.
