Google spottar äntligen upp sig och ser över hur de ska hantera Kina, eller snarare den kinesiska regimens krav på censur. Anledningen sägs vara bland annat.
In mid-December, we detected a highly sophisticated and targeted attack on our corporate infrastructure originating from China that resulted in the theft of intellectual property from Google …
that a primary goal of the attackers was accessing the Gmail accounts of Chinese human rights activists …
we have discovered that the accounts of dozens of U.S.-, China- and Europe-based Gmail users who are advocates of human rights in China appear to have been routinely accessed by third parties.
These attacks and the surveillance they have uncovered–combined with the attempts over the past year to further limit free speech on the web–have led us to conclude that we should review the feasibility of our business operations in China.
Självklart, censureras även nyheten om att Google överväger att lämna Kina.
