IPVM Implements A 'Not Made In PRC China' PolicyBy John Honovich, Published Oct 07, 2021, 10:00am EDT
IPVM is proud to implement a "not made in PRC China" policy. Watch this short video to learn more:
The China Communist Party, an authoritarian regime, intends to undermine the core freedoms of liberal democracy, including freedom of speech and freedom of the press.
The PRC's widespread human rights abuses and campaign of repression against anyone who exposes and questions their abuses is deeply unethical.
The PRC has blocked a vast number of websites, including the BBC, the NY Times, the WSJ, and IPVM. The PRC hopes no one will push back and aims to make the rest of the world dependent on their production.
As a company, IPVM has implemented a policy against purchasing goods made in the PRC, including Apple products. IPVM will not purchase iPhones, MacBooks, etc. until and unless these devices are made outside of the PRC.
And no IPVM spending on computers and electronics, etc., with the exception of items priced at $50 or less.
We will continue to buy PRC-made products, as appropriate, and test them objectively. However, for any PRC-made product IPVM buys for testing, we will donate 10% of the purchase price to human rights organizations, including Human Rights Watch, which the PRC has unjustly sanctioned over the organization's work to expose abuses globally.
Alone, our modest amount of spending will not make much of a difference. However, this is the right thing to do and we hope to be an example for other organizations to do the ethical thing and refuse to buy products made in the PRC.
