China, you've changed man...you used to be cool

In something of a turning point in Google-China relations since the search giant started redirecting users to its Hong Kong site, Google has decided to stop redirecting its huge Chinese audience to the uncensored Hong Kong website as it seeks to renew the license it holds to operate on the Chinese internet.

For the last three months, reports the New York Times, Google has found a clever way of bypassing the ethical and legal problems it has faced in Mainland China over its Government's internet and media censorship laws - to which the US company objects.

The company says that it has resubmitted an application for renewal of the license it still holds to operate in mainland China, and will be seeking a different approach to Chinese censorship.
