Microsoft, Google, Yahoo! and Free Speech

Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT), Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) and Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO) have decided to turn themselves into champions of free speech. In turn, they are likely to lose a lot of business. Reports

According to The Wall Street Journal, the companies "have agreed to a common set of principles for how to do business in nations that restrict free speech and expression, as the companies seek to combat criticism that they have helped enable censorship in those countries." Absent from the deal are all of the major local search engines in nations that might be viewed as "oppressive" when it comes to open speech rights.

Mr. Douglas McIntyre, an Anther in also wrote:

The news is a fine example of companies attempting to do good while hurting their shareholders. While the three big U.S. search companies champion U.S. values with rules, companies like Baidu (NASDAQ: BIDU) in China and Yandex in Russia will continue to expand their market share by playing ball with officials. What government that wants to support censorship is going to let "holier than thou" U.S. companies get more access to their markets?

U.S. search engines do well, to the extent that they can, in markets that are repressive because they offer some outside access to information even if their results are often censored. Pushing "free speech" rules in the face of local officials is hardly a way to keep whatever access they have to citizens in these nations. And it loses them market share and money. It is, in short, a waste.

Let's see, how this Internet Search Giants Fight for Free Speech or They want to work on the view of business!

Google May Scrap Yahoo-Google Combined Search Deal

On Nov 1st, 2008 2:06 PM BdNews24.Com Reports that Google Inc may decide to scrap its proposed partnership with Yahoo Inc rather than accept government-imposed antitrust restrictions on it, according to two sources familiar with the companies' discussions.

"Are they more serious about walking away? Yes. Have they decided? I'm not sure," one source told Reuters on Friday.

"Yahoo wants the deal, and they're willing to have Google sign anything at the Justice Department to have them do it," said the source.

A second source said that Google and Yahoo, Nos. 1 and 2 in the Internet search market, could announce as early as Friday that the deal had fallen apart.

Google and Yahoo representatives could not be immediately reached for comment.

Google and Yahoo delayed implementing the partnership announced in June to allow the U.S. Justice Department to scrutinize it for antitrust issues. Between them, Google and Yahoo had more than 80 percent of the web search market in August, according to comScore Inc.

The deal, which would allow Google to sell advertising for some of Yahoo's online advertising space, has drawn fierce criticism from advertisers, who fear higher prices.

Part of the impetus of Google's walking away could be Yahoo's talks with Time Warner Inc about buying the content and advertising operations of its AOL unit. Google initially struck the deal with Yahoo as a way to fend off Microsoft Corp's unsolicited bid.

Yahoo and AOL are conducting due diligence to see what a combined company would look like, another source previously told Reuters.

By collecting the revenue from placing Google ads along its search results, Yahoo's cash flow could grow by $250 million to $450 million in the first year of the deal, the companies had said in June.

The deal has since been mired in the regulatory process. In September, the Justice Department hired Sandy Litvack, its former antitrust chief and Walt Disney Co's former vice chairman, to consult on its probe of the search deal.

Microsoft buy Yahoo cost 44.6 billion USD

Microsoft wants spend 44.6 Billion to buy Yahoo Inc.
In other way, Microsoft is now owner of Yahoo Inc!
Or we can say, By selling Yahoo to Microsoft for 44.6 Billion USD, Yahoo just import the 'FATAL ERROR' on Homepage...LOL

What a news! I just got to know that Microsoft offer 44.6 Billion USD to buy Yahoo Inc. I am not sure that Yahoo Inc accept the offer of 44.6 Billion USD. The amount offered by Microsoft is double of Yahoo's current market price.

We know, for a long time, Microsoft is helping Yahoo in several way. Microsoft Corporation and Yahoo Inc has a good internal relation to competition with Internet leader 'Google Inc'. But Google is Google...

I have just started this issue and will keep updating time to time. You are welcome to post comment(s) on this issue. At this moment I am busy with an URGENT work on my network and can't continue writing this issue. Will comeback after my job done.

Mean time, you can visit Cnet News on:
