要唾棄 MSN Spaces? 還是要公幹微軟? (續)

剛剛看到的.
Microsoft confirms censoring of Chinese blog .
裡面的這段就是 Microsoft 提出的解釋 :

Microsoft said in a statement that the decision to unplug Zhao was inline with its practice of “ensuring that products and services comply with global and local laws, norms, and industry practices.”

“Most countries have laws and practices that require companies providing online services to make the Internet safe for local users,” the company said. “Occasionally, as in China, local laws and practices require consideration of unique elements.”

另外, 文章裡面還提供了 Yahoo rats out Chinese reporter to Beijing, writer gets 10 years in jail 這篇舊文的連結.

Microsoft and Bokee mired in Chinese free-speech controversy 的下面, 我們也可以看到由 MSN Group Product Manager – Brooke Richardson 丟出來的這段:

As a multi-national business, Microsoft operates in countries around the world. Inline with Microsoft practices in global markets, MSN is committed to ensuring that products and services comply with global and local laws, norms, and industry practices. Most countries have laws and practices that require companies providing online services to make the internet safe for local users. Occasionally, as in China, local laws and practices require consideration of unique elements.

而 Rebecca 也在 Why Microsoft censorship in China matters to everybody 一文中提出了他的看法.

看來很像是典型的人在屋簷下, 不得不低頭 ? O_o

可是, 我還記得之前的 這個事件 , 而且就算 China angry at Google map change , “Taiwan” 這個字依然存在於 Google local , 而且沒有被掛上 “Province” , 不是嗎? (眨眼)

這兩個事件可能有些不同, 一件跟法律有關, 一件則是完全沒有關係.
或許有人覺得 Microsoft 應該對他們的客戶好一點, 用更好的解決方式來處理這件事.
可是我的看法是, Microsoft 從來沒有好好的對待他們的客戶.
畢竟, 雖然國外已經有人受害了, 他們還是得等到 1 月 10 日才會丟出 這個漏洞 的 patch , 不是嗎?

嗯, 我越來越期待 Google 推出作業系統了. :-P
