Brin: Wrestling With Censorship Demands, Possible Changes?

My emphasis on this AP article:

Google Inc. co-founder Sergey Brin acknowledged Tuesday the dominant Internet company has compromised its principles by accommodating Chinese censorship demands. He said Google is wrestling to make the deal work before deciding whether to reverse course. (...)

“We felt that perhaps we could compromise our principles but provide ultimately more information for the Chinese and be a more effective service and perhaps make more of a difference,” Brin said. (...)

“Perhaps now the principled approach makes more sense,” Brin said. (...)

Brin said Google is trying to improve its censored search service,, before deciding whether to reverse course. He said virtually all the company’s customers in China use the non-censored service.
