Google to China: Maybe We Don’t Need You

Official Google Blog: A new approach to China

Whoa… Google grew a pair.

After thinking a bit more about this my take is Google found religion after realizing China was only going to take everything it could steal. If Google was going to lose because of China’s theft then it only made sense (and good public relations) to announce to the world that it would draw the line with China.

Found this also…

But having Google pull out its business may prove too much of an embarrassment and an acknowledgment of systemic repression, two things the Chinese government would like to avoid. Google could end up losing out on a potentially huge market, but if it doesn’t stand up for its IP, the Chinese will most certainly take such steps again in the future.
