ABSTRACT
The article reports on the efforts by Google in searching a winning strategy in China. Google caught flak when it caved in to pressure by China's government censors to filter Web search results. Despite the fact that Google lets users know when results are filtered and that the company has pointedly declared its reluctance to cooperate, it was branded an amoral collaborator.
