Google Conforms to Chinese Censorship

SAN FRANCISCO - Google Inc.'s recently launched news service in China
doesn't display results from Web sites blocked by that country's
authorities, raising prickly questions for an online search engine that
has famously promised to "do no evil."
Dynamic Internet Technology Inc., a research firm striving to defeat
online censorship, conducted tests that found Google omits results from
the government-banned sites if search requests are made through computers
connecting to the Internet in China.
Steered by an identical search request, computers with a United States
connection retrieved results from the sites blocked by China.
