Chinese Government blocks access to Google.com

The BBC reports that the Chinese government has blocked access to the main [tag]Google.com[/tag] website and is actively targeteting those people who produce software that enable the avoidance of these restrictions.

Although the actual announcement comes as a shock, a Reporters without Borders spokesperson claims that:

“It was only to be expected that Google.com would be gradually sidelined after the censored version was launched in January”.

I still don’t understand how a company who is ruled by the words “do not evil” can willingly go against the very root of the internet – freedom of intformation.

Maybe they should now put their efforts into some anti-blocking software which will enable their Chinese users to see what the rest of the world is like.
