Should IPVM Ban Testing Dahua And Hikvision Products Because Of Human Rights Abuses? (2021)

We originally had this discussion in 2019, see here. With greater evidence and more action against Dahua and Hikvision for ethical violations, this is coming up again (e.g. comments of this report), so I wanted to create a new topic.

Those that think we should not test Dahua and Hikvision do not object to us publishing negative test results, e.g., Dahua Emotion Recognition Analytics Tested, IPVM Scientific Study Published by Journal of Biomedical Optics Shows Systematic Temperature Screening Manipulation.
