I know it's a business world out there that I know little about, but it's still sad to see Google having to worry about losing all that revenue from doing something which is actually that first big but necessary step/stand.

It's been a long time coming.

Last month, Google said it no longer felt comfortable complying with [China's] demands that it censor Web content deemed objectionable by the communist rulers. On Monday, Google began sending Web searchers in mainland China from the China-based Google.cn to Google.com.hk, based in Hong Kong. The former British colony has an open Internet, and Google is not legally required to censor results there.
