China Renews Google's Internet License



After Google's clever China stunt--redirecting its China web site to Hong Kong so as to avoid censoring search results--it seemed Beijing might punish the company by revoking its license to operate at all in China.

But apparently not.

The AP reports that Beijing has renewed Google's Internet license:

An e-mailed statement from Google said that the Chinese government had renewed the search giant’s license and the company looks forward to continuing to provide web search and other services to users in China. 
It will be interesting to see what concessions, if any, Google made to make this happen.
