Singapore: Youtube Video Leads to Firing of a Temp Employee

Themediaslut writes about an ISP/Mobile provider in Singapore who fired a temp worker for putting up a video on youtube that featured him and another employee playing around in the office. Analyzing the company's response to the press story on this incident, the blogger says “Right now, Starhub is being seen as that company that doesn’t allow youtubing. It is ironic because its a telco that sells mobile phone with cameras and where do u think this videos usually end up?”
