Just In: Google may pull out of China

Google says it may pull out of China after a computer network attack targeted its Gmail service, and in particular, accounts of human rights activists. Here’s more from the Washington Post and other sources.  Google’s Chief Legal Officer David Drummond weighs in here.  TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington adds “in light of the attacks, and after attempts by the Chinese government to further restrict free speech on the web, Google has decided it will deploy a fully uncensored version of its search engine in China.”  As Michael says, this is a big deal since Google had been, up until now, offering censored search results thru its Google.cn site.  That has now changed, apparently.
