In a significant show of support for Web portal Yahoo!, which faces ongoing litigation
over the sale of Nazi-related items in France via its U.S.-based Web site, several
prominent Internet industry associations and business organizations have filed a
"friend of the court" brief on behalf of Yahoo! in U.S. District Court.
The brief argues that U.S. courts may not enforce judgments of foreign courts that lack
personal jurisdiction over U.S. defendants, because to do so would violate the due
process clause of the U.S. Constitution's Fifth Amendment.
If a country wants to control what it citizens browse on the internet, it's the country resposibility to block it and of a website on a foreign country.
France should do like China and some Middle-East country's where all point of connections to other country's internet is monitored and filtered.
as long as this is aimed at americans overseas only ,and no laws are being broken ..I agree with yahoo!s stand.. I do have to add,I was horrified to think that anyone would want to buy that JUNK!
