    Who cares? If China want to close themselves into a little bubble from the outside world and restrict what their people can see then they dont get to use global things such as google.

    They do get to use Google, just the censored version www.google.cn , without that pretty much all of China will have to switch search engines. And the Chinese government won't be happy at all. Google is going to get a lot of flak from China as a result, most likely China will ramp up its hacking attempts on Google. Not to mention Google will loose hundreds (thousands?) of millions of users as a result. But it is good to see Google standing up to China even with so much at stake.

    No doubts there. This is really "brave" of Google to stand up to China knowing the risks.

    It is not risk, it is common sense... WHO controls the internet? Um. Last time I checked, no one. (Don't say Al Gore because that's dumb). China needs to seriously leave the bubble. If they continue to be that way they will destroy them self.

    If Google succeeds every other company will second guess themselves and follow Google bravery steps. Buy that time China Revolution will take place and they will break down the barriers of freedom.

    (If I went over board sorry)
