Yahoo, Microsoft and Google to adopt code of ethics
Yahoo news wrote about it, others did too, so I guess it’s not news for you, my dear readers, still I find it fascinating that those three big names are associated with work on a unified code of ethics to promote freedom of speech!
“We seem to be getting more grey areas in terms freedom of expression versus censorship, legal versus illegal and border versus non-border” (Yahoo chief executive Jerry Yang)
Apart from the obvious need for a unified code of ethics for the web users in general, we see people like Yang addressing the issue of freedom of speech in talks to US government, as well as in relation to problems in China.
I am glad to see this initiative exactly when Amnesty is promoting celebrations around the 60th anniversary of Declaration of Human Rights.
