Google China July 12, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): The search engine monster, Google has made a comeback to China after their historic and dramatic expulsion. Google’s lawyer David Drummond said that the company was very pleased with the fact, that the government of China had renewed the ICP or the Internet Content Provider license and that the company is very much delighted to start with its projects in China, yet again.

Earlier, Google had risked its expulsion from the earth’s biggest Internet market after the Chinese government objected against its procedure in the month of March. The operator of Google said that the company wasn’t really willing to comply with the set of rules and regulations as set up by the Chinese administration. They weren’t ready to ‘self-censor’ whatever content they uploaded.

In a statement issued by Google last week, the company added a link to the unfiltered Hong Kong location. The company wishes to stay correct to its statement. They also plan to stick to the commitment of not self-censoring the results of the search in China, even as it adheres to the local law and order proceedings. It’s said that the company’s market share in China fell by 30.9% right in the first quarter. It was 35.6% three months before as per data submitted by the Analysys International.

China is considered to be a goldmine as far as the Internet is concerned and Google really wants to stay there. Meanwhile, the Chinese Government wouldn’t really wish to lose out on an Internet giant like Google. Thus both parties have arrived at a decision regarding the entire situation.
