Journal Erris's Journal: China Steals M$, Yahoo and Google Traffic Again. 1

Google confirmed that the Chinese are up to their old tricks. "We've had numerous reports that and other search engines have been blocked in China and traffic redirected to other sites," said a company spokesman.

It serves them right because it's wrong to do business with oppressive governments like China's.

It should also be a lesson to anyone who does not believe in network neutrality. The guilty parties don't care about your rights any more than rights in China. Owned networks don't serve anyone but their owners.
