As much as I disagree with the Saudi government, it is their right to make and enforce laws. Foreign companies wishing to operate there can’t only comply with laws that are in line with their own values.
This isn't the first. It's not a precedent being set by them. Countries all over the world censor the internet.
I don't see China, Thailand, Saudi Arabia, etc. falling under anytime soon because Netflix will take a stand. They'll just get blocked like any other website. They know that too so they just don't bother and comply. Stupid article...
Netflix had seemed to be one of the few tech companies that could do no wrong of late. It's built a reputation as a place people want to work and can be proud they work. I wonder how a story like this affects employee retention and recruitment.
Were there reactions from Netflix employees?
