I don't know why, but if I worked at Google, I wouldn't have had the slightest compunction about the censored version of their search engine for China. If Google wants to cripple its search capabilities in order to operate in China, I can't see why anyone should have any objections to this. If they have to report rebellious users to the government, that's another story, and I can understand the moral argument made on this basis. But withholding information (is this not the meaning of the word censorship) because you aren't allowed to show it is just meh. Lots of links to free copies of copyright-protected materials are already being removed from Google in an act of censorship.
