Microsoft and Human Rights

From Microsoft shuts down blog in China

Read the article and tell me if it is morally right for Microsoft, or even Yahoo!, to be preventing human rights causes? Or, better yet, assisting in the conviction of journalists outspoken against Communism?

Oh, and please don't give me this line about being obedient to that country's laws. If we're doing business with China, who are knowingly imprisoning people for being outspoken, then we should pull out. It's time we start sticking up for people's lives than for the 'almighty' dollar.
