Google No Longer Will Collaborate With China

I have a comment on the NYT Room to Debate forum Google or China: Who Has More to Lose? praising Google's decision not to censor search results on .cn but recognizing that it was the alleged Chinese government's hacking that broke the camel's back as opposed to general disgust with the regime's Internet Freedom policy (I also wrote about this at the time of the initial announcement in January). I do think it shows that while doing business with China could be justified by a goal of fostering engagement, collaborating with the regime cannot.
