Google Threatens to Leave China in Reaction to Email Breach

Google Inc. will stop censoring its search results in China and may pull out of the country completely after discovering that computer hackers had tricked human-rights activists into exposing their e-mail accounts to outsiders.

Income from Google.cn only contributes about 2.7% to Google’s entire revenue, which might be balanced by the fact that Baidu represents about 60% of China’s searches. Two things that might tip the balance against China:

  1. Google.cn will now offer uncensored results.»
  2. Baidu might be a bit ramshackle.
