Congressman quizzes Net companies on shame | CNET News.com:
Lantos, to Microsoft: Is your company ashamed?
Microsoft: We comply with legally binding orders whether it's here in the U.S. or China.
Lantos: Well, IBM complied with legal orders when they cooperated with Nazi Germany. Those were legal orders under the Nazi German system...Do you think that IBM during that period had something to be ashamed of?
Microsoft: I can't speak to that. I'm not familiar in detail with IBM's activities in that period.
Lantos: You heard (Rep. Christopher Smith's) speech (click for PDF). Assuming that his words are accurate, is IBM to be ashamed of their action during that period?
Microsoft: Congressman, I don't think it's my position to say whether IBM should be ashamed.
