Google's politic in China is going to change

Logo_cn During the censorship is more and more present in China, Google, decide to do not still censor the results of the its search engine.

Indeed the Californian company face to many web attack these times, which came from China, as other twenty other big companies.

These attacks was mainly done to access to Gmail account owned by Chinese human rights activists.

Because of these attacks, the watching politic of beijing and the uncomfortable face to the law that Google have to respect, the decision to review the business operation have been announce by David Drummond, chief legal officer. In concrete terms, Google do no still want to accept to censor the search engine's results.

Of course, Google is aware that the search engine can be shutdown and potentially close the offices.

In my opinion I think that it's a very courageous decision and of worldwide importance. I'm wondering how the Chinese giant will react face to this. It's important to know that the Californian engine own 30% of the market against 60% for the Chinese one Baidu.com.

I imagine that the government will not change of position, China is not ready yet. However it's certainly a first step to a long and hard transition.
