In 2007 Jerry Yang, CEO of Yahoo!, was assailed by U.S. Delegate Tom Lantos, administrator of the U.S. House Committee on Foreign Affairs, for Yahoos part in the capture and detainment of Chinese columnist and majority rule government advocate Shi Tao. The case portrays the activities that Yahoo! had taken to develop its business in China, its treatment of an administration demand for the personality of a Yahoo! client, and ensuing activities by the firm to react to negative reputation and Congressional request. The case brings up wide issues about the test of agreeing to local law when working in expresses that dont reliably regard human rights, and fulfill partners crosswise over national limits. It permits students to consider the reasonable steps that a firm can take to secure itself and its partners in states where the law is not generally a solid shield.
