China Renews Google’s License

Google announced Friday that China had renewed its license to operate in the world’s largest market, at least for another year.

The announcement comes after the Chinese government looked likely to shut down the Google.cn web site in late June, six months after Google started a showdown with the Communist regime by saying it would no longer censor search results as it had agreed to when it entered China in 2006.

The renewal followed another clever concession from Google, which initially resolved the problem by automatically redirecting all mainland Chinese searchers to its uncensored Hong Kong search site, Google.com.hk. While brazen, the automatic redirect initially placated authorities.
