Cisco Refutes China Allegations

Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) is being hit by a lawsuit alleging it is helping suppress dissent in China.

Though Cisco sells and develops products in China, it denied it is in any way complicit with attempts by the Chinese government to limit free speech.

"Cisco does not operate networks in China or elsewhere, nor does Cisco customize our products in any way that would facilitate censorship or repression," Cisco said in a statement sent to InternetNews.com. "Cisco builds equipment to global standards which facilitate free exchange of information, and we sell the same equipment in China that we sell in other nations worldwide in strict compliance with US government regulations."
