Skype, owne by Microsoft, assumes you allow Chinese Authorities to spy on your skype calls.
all your phone calls and text chats can be monitored by the censorship authorities in China. And if you are aware, chances are that you do not
the operator or company facilitating your communication may provide personal data, communications content and/or traffic data to an appropriate
judicial, law enforcement or government authority lawfully requesting such information. Skype will provide reasonable assistance and information to
fulfill this request and you hereby consent to such disclosure.
This of course is not unique or new in any way. but I thought it might be a good topic for discussion:why exactly are tech giants giving China tools
of oppression and espionage? without Cisco, China would not have it's great fire wall. without other companies like Skype, the Chinese regime would
not be so successful in oppression its own citizens.
personally, I am certain it will back fire in a case of conflict. just thing of the irony - western technology used to damage western targets. It's
an upside down Trojan horse.
