Boycott Google and Yahoo?

This article in Domain-b the online business magazine looks at whether a boycott of Google and Yahoo! is feasible, if at all.

Yahoo! the internet search engine, advertising medium, and e-mail supplier, helped the Chinese police to trace human rights-related e-mails, which has resulted in prosecution and a ten-year sentence for the journalist involved, Shi Tao. Yahoo!'s rival, Google, has agreed with China that in return for access, its Chinese site will block content that the Chinese government does not approve, for example those relating to human rights campaigns.
