Google Agrees to Censor Results in China


Recommended Posts

I see that the "do no evil" mantra google uses no longer applies. But atleast we still can search for porn.

Online search engine leader Google Inc. has agreed to censor its results in China, adhering to the country's free-speech restrictions in return for better access in the Internet's fastest growing market.

The Mountain View, Calif.-based company planned to roll out a new version of its search engine bearing China's Web suffix ".cn," on Wednesday. A Chinese-language version of Google's search engine has previously been available through the company's dot-com address in the United States.

By creating a unique address for China, Google hopes to make its search engine more widely available and easier to use in the world's most populous country.

Because of government barriers set up to suppress information, Google's China users previously have been blocked from using the search engine or encountered lengthy delays in response time.

The service troubles have frustrated many Chinese users, hobbling Google's efforts to expand its market share in a country that expected to emerge as an Internet gold mine over the next decade.

this is actually interesting.... American companies are (have) learned how to do business in other parts of the world..

I wonder why American companies have to bend over backwards to accommendate our countries' belief system while foreign companies can pretty much do whatever the hell they want here.
