There has been constant reporting of US and other IT companies going
into in China co-operating with the mainland Chinese government.  The
mainland Chinese government cares about human rights about as much as
the average person cares about the rights of a Rigellian.  For as long
as I can remember, I have tried as hard as possible not to buy anything
"Made in China" [unless I find that it's actually from Taiwan].
