+ - U.S. Court: Chinese Search Engine's Censorship Is "Free Speech"->

Submitted by jfruh
jfruh (300774) writes "You will probably not be surprised to learn that Chinese search giant Baidu censors a wide range of content, particularly political material deemed to be pro-democracy — and does so for users everywhere, not just in China. A group of activists filed suit against Baidu in New York for violating free speech laws, but the judge in the case declared that, as a private entity in the United States, Baidu has the right to provide whatever kind of search results it wants, even for political reasons."
