yep... China Reality Check #102 (Censored content was #101) :-)

There will be dozens more hurdles like this one waiting to happen. This will all be solved -off the record- with substantial money paid to the "right" guys... or by removing from SERPs stuff like Tienanmen Square... or Tibet...

Well according to the various press releases...Google already filters the results.

"Google.cn blocks searches for material on human rights, Tibet and other topics banned by the government. Yahoo Inc. (Nasdaq:YHOO - news) has been accused of providing Chinese authorities with information that led to the jailing of two Chinese e-mail users, and Microsoft Corp. shut down the Web log of a Chinese user at the government's request. Network equipment maker Cisco Systems Inc. also has been accused of cooperating with Beijing."

Slaves to greed, we'll stab our friends in the back.

Blind to reality, we march on looking for new friends.

According to The Beijing News Google China already reported their headquarter in the USA about this problem. Chinese Internet Insiders are speculating about a Google expanding tour in China to get an own ICP-license...

According to our current regulation, only chinese company can get ICP license; that's the only barrier to google.
