Filed under: News, Web services, Google, SearchAt the beginning of the month, we told you how Google's license to operate in China was up for renewal. Well, that renewal has finally come through, and Google will be allowed to stay in the country. The search giant had temporarily redirected its Chinese site to Google.hk in Hong Kong, to avoid censorship, but ended the redirect to make sure the renewal went through.
It's not surprising that Google got its license approved again, especially after making that concession, but it is surprising that the company says it will still provide unfiltered results. ”
Users can conduct web search or continue to use Google.cn services like music and text translate, which we can provide locally without filtering.” Not all of Google's services are available through Google.cn, though, so even though there's no longer an automatic redirect, there's still a link to Google.hk on Google's Chinese homepage.
Google gets license renewed to stay in China, unfiltered (sort of)
