Google asks US, EU to press China on censorship [finance.yahoo.com]
Google Inc.'s top lawyer said Wednesday that the world's leading search engine is asking the U.S. and European governments to press China to lift Internet censorship, describing it as an unfair barrier to free trade.
David Drummond told reporters that western states should defend the free trade in information with the same kind of rules that they use to complain of China's below-cost sale of products.
He said government talks are "the only way that it's going to change, that this tide of censorship or this rising censorship is going to be arrested."
