The recent discovery of Chinese authorities snooping in on Skype communications is big news in the English Internet.
However so far the issue has received little coverage in China; it’s likely to be censored. I noticed a single news article about it on the Chinese portal tech.163.com, it looks like the link doesn’t work anymore though - I’m guessing the article probably got deleted quickly after being noticed by higher-ups or the authorities.
I’m not sure how much people in China consider this “news” anyway - it’s well known in China that all electronic communications is censored and monitored. Online privacy is regularly trampled upon. What’s going on with Skype is only the tip of the iceberg:
It’s scary that goverments all around the world, not just China, are snooping in on electronic communications. In China, the difference is in scope and sophistication (or lack of it).
