China Refuses to Budge on Internet Restrictions in Wake of Google Threat

After Google threatened to pull out of China, the world waited with baited breath to see what China would do. Deep down, I think many of us hoped that China would open the Internet to its citizens. That does not appear to be the case.

The Foreign Ministry of China has reiterated their policy that Internet companies are welcome to operate but most do so within the confines of Chinese law.

The ball is back in Google's court.

Over at Techdirt, Mike Masnick is raising a good point. If Google follows through on their threat, will they also pull out of India and Australia who restrict Internet content as well?

What do you think Google should do? Sound off in the comments.
