EMC's business in China scrutinized

HOPKINTON

Hopkinton-based data storage giant EMC Corp.'s activities are under the microscope in a Business Week article, which reports that EMC and other American companies are selling information technology to China's police.

The magazine says that the companies say they have no obligation or ability to determine whether Chinese security forces use their technology for political oppression. One American company executive also told the magazine that anything that helps China to modernize will help China to improve its human rights situation.
