Cisco And Censorship
A letter showed up in the Washington Post today, written by Cisco SVP of Corporate Development, Dan Scheinman, refuting the belief by many that the Chinese governement uses Cisco technology to filter what its citizens can read on the Internet, and keeping surveillance on those who do access "subversive material." The letter is in response to a Washington Post article "Let a Thousand Filters Bloom," by Anne Applebaum. The original article may be viewed at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2005/07/19/AR2005071901556.html
The text of the letter is below.
For The Benefit Of All
In "Let a Thousand Filters Bloom" [op-ed, July 20] Anne Applebaum repeated a tale that implies that Cisco Systems Inc. knowingly is helping China's Internet filtering regime with a high-tech surveillance system. That is false. Cisco has never participated in censorship of information by foreign governments.
