Google's algo. will appear for sale in China soon.
Highly doubt, Google would not let it's highly prized SE codes in some foreign office. They would have it locked down and the code would be fragmented so that no one would be able to compile it unless they were at Google HQ, in a locked down room. (imo)
I personally think this is a good move. It scares Google just that extra bit so they don't try to push the boundaries next time. Imagine if governments just let this pass? Google would get more and more brave, to the point where they know more about us, than we do about ourselves.
