Stephen Conroy, writing in today’s Crikey:
Keane’s speculation of whether Google will comply with the laws of the Australian Government is interesting, however it should be noted that Google has operated within the Chinese regime for many years. It also abides by the laws in Thailand requiring it to filter from its search results any criticism of the Thai king…
The filter will be fine because Google is quite capable of adapting to repressive censorship regimes like the one Conroy is proposing.
Well, I’m sold.
