Google bows to China pressure by Verne Kopytoff, Chronicle Staff Writer Jan. 25, 2005
This is an interesting piece of information. On the one hand, Google is fighting the Dept of Justice subpoena on providing user information, but on the other hand the company has agreed (just as the other search engine companies have done) to censor search results in China. How does this get subclassified in the “do no evil” category?
“The popular search engine will block results that include such terms as “free Tibet,” “democracy” and “Falun Gong” as part of a Chinese Web site the company is introducing today.”
