US PC makers in 'stolen code' row
« on: June 16, 2009, 06:00:26 am »

This an edited extract. The full article can be found at the link above.

A California company is considering legal action to prevent computers being shipped to China with what it says is stolen internet blocking software. Solid Oak said it found pieces of its CyberSitter programme in China's Green Dam Youth Escort screening software.

China has mandated that all new PCs contain filters to protect children from offensive material on the net.

The Chinese firm that made Green Dam, Jinhui Computer System Engineering Inc, denies any wrongdoing. But Solid Oak's Brian Milburn said "We're contacting Dell, HP and others to stop compromised material being shipped." "If China had gotten hold of free pirated copies of Microsoft's Windows and told Dell and HP to put this on all computers you ship, you would hear a loud outcry. China has a very loose interpretation of what is intellectual property," said Mr Milburn.

I've posted this item to show that not all American companies intend to cooperate with China's blocking of internet sites.
