Google vs. China

Yesterday, Google countered China's Internet censorship policy after discovering that an attempt to hack the emails of human rights activists. Kevin Pereira and Tom Krazit from CNet.com delve into Google's move and the effects of their closing their operations in China. This potential blowout could have quite a domino effect.

    It's not just the fact that they got attacked that bothers me, in all honesty I like them threatening to leave if they can't uncensore google for China.... No country/Government has the right to decide what people get to see, hear, or do esp. on the internet (their media is even more controlled than ours, and openly controlled).... I'm not saying that the American Government is that much better seeing as they are heading towards a controlling direction media and rights etc. but that's another subject. The fact remains this is a good jump towards the better good in allowing people just like you and I freedom of speech, & other rights...

    It boggles my mind to to think that my internet and rights could be controlled by a government or taken away at any time. Everyone deserves the same rights as anyone else.. China is absolutely no exception, I'd love to see a revolution. i wanted to add that google did censor their crap for China for like 4 years... which is pretty crappy on their part & inexcusable, so this would be a good move.

    Google vs. China was just a matter of time. I like google and all but, googles not going to leave China and all that money. No large Co. will, "just do the right thing" when we're talking about this kind of cash.

    This is all Google's fault, they wanted in china so bad that they cut a bad deal just to get into the country, Next time don't sell out just to enter a new market, and remember that people will stop using your service if they think you will betray them!
