Google China Dispute Nearing End
According to a Financial Times article:
Google has drawn up detailed plans for the closure of its Chinese search engine and is now “99.9 per cent” certain to go ahead as talks over censorship with the Chinese authorities have reached an apparent impasse, according to a person familiar with the company’s thinking.
It would seem that with neither China or Google caving, Google will pull out of China. They are planning on leaving a sales force to sell Chinese ads, but Google.cn may be shutting down for good.
