Seems a little off from their whole motto. Aren't they supposed to be about expanding the reach for information? How does restricting search, no matter the country, fit in?

Google "capitulates."

Some companies think that if you get SOME access to people in countries like China that it's better than NO access to people in countries like China whatsoever. I agree. It's a good business decision, too.

I hope this doesn't devolve into a political debate.
