Google's Fight Against Chinese Censors Ends

The US Company Stops Informing Chinese Citizens

Since the internet's beginning, the Republic of China makes efforts to keep its citizens away from dangerous contents and even intensified that recently especially regarding anonymous surfing. Also, this story about a newspaper keeps discussions going in the country at the moment.

In the last years, Google tried to work against some of the Chinese censorship in some aspects. For example, they pointed out to their Chinese users that certain results of their searches were not available in their country. This practice is also followed in other countries, but way less strict:

"In response to a legal request submitted to Google, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read more about the request at ChillingEffects.org."

The Chinese government found that to be too much information that allowed the citizens to work around the restrictions. Of course, the government undertook actions against that loophole and it looks like that was successful. Only a few months after its introduction, the useful feature can not be used in China any longer.
