What's the problem, again?
I don't think Google could serve up kiddie porn results in the US, could they? So why should they serve up illegal porn in China? Maybe the merkins should stop thinking that US laws apply all around the world. Reminds me of how TPB keeps few examples of American lawyers threatening an -obviously- Swede company under the DMCA.
Attention Chinese gov: please be advised that your decision is probably in violation of one or several US laws! Might also not be fully compatible with one or a few laws from Malawi. Who gives a feck?
And about Iran, well the whole media coverage looks suspiciously like the inflating run-up for an invasion... because to be honest, I know of a country where all the election in the past years have been occasion for demonstrated irregularities, a country ruled by religious nutters who have nucular weapons, a country where the evil police kills unarmed and non-threatening citizens* on a monthly basis... I believe this country is located somewhere between Mexico and Canada. And I believe this country needs to sort its sh*t out before spreading it around. ta very much in advance. (It's also valid for Ol'Blighty since you ask. Though arguably a bit less so.)
Google *is* evil when it suits them, that's obvious. But abiding by the local law can hardly be seen as evil. The parallel with they Farsi translation service is stupid. I don't think there is any law anywhere in the world forbidding the translation to/from Farsi.
* preferably black or latino ones
