Google VS China (2)

Posted on: 05/03/2010

The issue of Google in China continues in the following months.

In February, The New York Times reported that the online attacks towards Google were from 2 China schools, but not from the Chinese government. The investigation said that the purpose of these attacks is stealing trade secrets and computer codes and capturing e-mail of Chinese human rights activists. One elite Chinese University called Shanghai Jiaotong University is involved. Its computer science program is one of the top institutions in China. The other one is a vocational computer school in Shandong Province. It is said this school was established with military support, but the school did not admit it.

In March, based on the recent report from Bloomberg, the US government suggested Google to take “China’s Internet censorship to the World Trade Organization (WTO) as an unfair barrier to trade”. However, the censorship in China applies to all Internet companies, and it is less of a trade issue that violate WTO rules.

However, Bloomberg also reported that Google China is recruiting new engineers, managers and sales staff. It seems that now Google China is returning to normal.
