Google's launch of a new, self-censored search engine in China is a "black day" for freedom of expression, a leading international media watchdog says. Reporters Without Borders joined others in asking how Google could stand up for US users' freedoms while controlling what Chinese users can search for.
Google argues it would be more damaging to pull out of China altogether and says that in contrast to other search engines, it will inform users when access is restricted on certain search terms.
The above summarises two different views about whether Google is justified in its support of Mainland China's censorship. Which view do you support?
