From the Inquirer:

INTERNET SEARCH AND ADVERTISING giant Google is refusing to censor searches and is threatening to pull out of the world's largest potential market after Chinese hackers attacked the firm and tricked human rights activists into opening their email accounts to outsiders.

It will be a huge about-face for Google which has always said obeyed Chinese laws that require some politically and socially sensitive issues to be blocked from search results that are available in other countries

But in his blog, Google's chief legal officer David Drummond said that Goggle detected a "highly sophisticated and targeted attack on its corporate infrastructure originating from China."
