Green_Grass, as long as people want the product production will be expected to continue which can be construed as forgiveness. I was surprised Google took a stand against a country with the political clout China has but I will be more surprised if Google doesn't stay in China ultimately because there is profit to be made both for China and for Google.
The real question is... who's privacy is being trampled on and how much will it cost them to defend? It's not unlike 9/11 when we lost a few thousand people and some buildings only to take a course of action that led to the loss of tens of thousands of lives and enough money to buy hundreds of buildings. Will too much money be thrown at this in an over-reaction?
