Google and the Emperor, cont'd...

Google has yet to make a decision regard its January 12 announcement that it will no longer self-censor its Chinese search engine and the Chinese government has been quiet on its plans.

China, as conditions for allowing Chinese citizens to use its website, required Google and other search engines to self-censor such hot button political topics as Tiananmen or FalunGong.

CNN money reported that it was finally leaked that some government officials had spoken with Google, but they remained hushed about the terms of any talks.

The silence has lead many to believe that China will not negotiate and force Google to either re-neg or pack up its Chinese operations.
