Chinese Minister Insists Google Obey The Law

Friday, March 12, 2010

••• There’s no sign of a compromise between Google and China in their dispute over censorship and hacking.

China’s top Internet regulator says Google must obey its laws or “pay the consequences.”

He gave no details today of Beijing’s talks with Google over its January announcement that it planned to stop complying with Chinese Internet censorship rules and might close its China-based site.

Beijing encourages Internet use for education and business but tries to block access to material deemed subversive or pornographic, including websites abroad run by human rights and pro-democracy activists.

The Chinese official says it’s up to Google whether it leaves or not. But he says “if they leave, China’s Internet market is still going to develop.”

China has the world’s most populous Internet market, with 384 million people online. Google has about 35% of the Chinese search market.
