China renews Google licence

india Updated: Jul 09, 2010 21:47 IST

Google Inc said on Friday that the Chinese authorities had renewed its licence to operate a website, averting a potential shutdown of its flagship search page in the world's biggest Internet market.

The Internet giant said last week that it would stop automatically rerouting users to its uncensored Hong Kong-based search page, explaining that Beijing had indicated it would not renew its Internet Content Provider (ISP) licence if it continued to do so.
