    China executed people involved with lead paint coated toys. While not endangering to the top leaders of China it was embarrassing. Free information on the other hand is dangerous to China's leaders. I would hate to see a Google employee be made an example of for providing information.

     

    The simple solution is to take the loss, leave China, and decide never again to invest in countries that have not shown a multi-generational commitment to and culture of freedom.

     

    The soul of Google is free information. Why risk losing it for $$$ in an unfree country. Can no public company see past next quarters earnings?
