Yahoo Buys Understanding on Jailed Journalists

Families of Jailed Chinese journalists settled with Yahoo on a case filed in California alleging Yahoo unnecessarily assisted the Communism Police in convicting and jailing of journalists not liked by the state.

Yahoo's Jerry Yang was grilled on the Capital Hill on the ordeal earlier this month.

Per undisclosed terms, Yahoo will set up a fund to help the life of the families of jailed journalists. The journalists were using Yahoo EMail accounts, which were turned over to Chinese authorities. The tricky point is they were not using Yahoo China, that might be obliged by law to cooperate with the authority.
