Google Stops Censorship in China

March 23, 2010 · Posted in Social Networking 

It is now official, Google has stopped censorship in China.

Whilst Google had complained about a “sophisticated cyber attack originating from China” in January this year, China accused Google of violating a “written promise” it made when entering the market to abide by laws requiring it to filter its search service.

In the interim, Google’s chief legal officer, David Drummond, said that Chinese users will be forwarded to “uncensored search” from Google.com.hk, as a sensible solution to the challenges they have faced. It’s entirely legal and will meaningfully increase access to information for people in China.
