Google ends censorship of Chinese search engine

india Updated: Mar 23, 2010 01:59 IST

Google announced on Monday that it has stopped censoring its Chinese-language search engine Google.cn.

"Earlier today we stopped censoring our search services - Google Search, Google News, and Google Images - on Google.cn," Google chief legal officer David Drummond said in a blog post.

"Users visiting Google.cn are now being redirected to Google.com.hk, where we are offering uncensored search in simplified Chinese, specifically designed for users in mainland China and delivered via our servers in Hong Kong," he said.

Google's move came a little over two months after the Internet giant said it had been the victim of sophisticated cyberattacks originating from China.
