US Internet biz profits from oppression

From the Washington Post:

House: Internet Companies Give in to China

WASHINGTON -- Lawmakers on Wednesday accused U.S.-based Internet companies of
giving in to pressure from China and helping to censor Web users in violation
of American principles of free speech.

I think it's disgusting that these companies are seeking to profit from cooperation with oppression while simultaneously benefiting from the freedoms afforded them here in the US.
