Currently China has 120 million internet users.

According to the current user growth rate(4 million new DSL users per quarter), at the end of this year(2006) China will take the place of U.S and becomes the country that has the most ADSL/Broadband internet users in the world.

It is very interesting that in China some pirate websites(software/movie) are still open but porn or sex websites are absolutely forbidden.

I don't understand what all this fuss is about China closing websites(especially about people flaming google when it follow China's guidelines).

When you do business in another country, it is a no-brainer that you follow it's laws. That is evident when Chinese companies do business here in the U.S., they will follow U.S. laws, not Chinese laws. So what's the difference when a U.S. Company, such as google, goes into China to do business. Should U.S. companies be exempt from this? Absolutely not.


I don't understand... With all the trouble in the Middle East, what is the U.S. doing complaining about China's own soverign laws?
