China and Google

The Chinese government requires Google to censor certain search results if Google is to operate in their country. Google acquieses.

People have critisized Google for giving in like this -- especially as it seems to go against their motto of "don't be evil". Google could have foregone ad revenue etc. and refused to run a crippled version of their service in China. This article does a good job of detailing how Google.china is different from Google.normal.
