A law should be passed that not only requires censorship but forbids the involved to speak of it. Then Google.cn would have to put up something along the line of "In compliance with local statutes we are not allowed to talk about what we may have done to your search results (not that we've necessarily done anything)".

BTW, this Firefox Stylish script (userstyles.org/style/show/76) can be easily made to replace Google's logo with, say, the Red China Google logo displayed on this post. Kinda fun, like masturbation. (But I suppose you could do this to, say, lots of University PCs? ;))

"Does a business operating in China need to constantly tell customers that it's abiding by the laws of the land?"

Has anyone at China Business Times ever opened a bank account, bought liquor, or gone to the doctor? At least here in the United States, I can't do any of those things without encountering explanations that certain steps are necessary to comply with the law. Idiots.

hi, Phillips, will those blog posts of yours talking about China's censership policies as to the internet enlist you to the blacklist that would block you to enter China?

W.Y., I don't know. That would be very bad.
