Just received an email from a friend in China not able to view this article. For the rest of the 'free' world you may find it an interesting read.
I also received an email from melbourne IT last week saying that China has stopped allowing foreign entities from registering Chinese domain names.
China has a socialist government, so we can't expect them to operate under the same rules as those we follow in democratic countries. They are protecting their own interests. You can't blame them for that. However, what they do in the open I would suppose most big companies in the west would be doing behind closed doors in any case. Not saying that google would do anything like that though....
I guess the big loser with this whole business in China is the free flow of information... I'm not sure we're any better of in west though since most of what we see in the news is regurgitated political propaganda.
Why can't we all just play nice ???
