Question description

(TCO I) In Week 2, our course discussed the conflicts on the Internet of Yahoo.com supporting a website by the American Nazi Party, whose promotion of Nazi propaganda and sale of Nazi memorabilia was a direct violation of French government law. Yahoo refused three attempts by the French government to force the website to be taken down on the grounds that this was an exercise of the American Nazi Party’s First Amendment rights.
At virtually the same time, the government of China ordered Google to take down certain website information posted by their customers. Google complied with this demand from the government by taking down or blocking any information identified as offensive by the Chinese, without requesting the approval of their customers. Do you agree with this action by Google? What options besides caving-in were available to Google? What was the long-term effect on Google in China?
