chinese govt at it again

Anyone read this? This is the kind of heavy-handed sh*t that makes chinese IDNs such a risk in my mind - the government has no respect for law or commerce.

• Chinese Government Suspected In Redirecting Portal Traffic: Internet users trying to reach Google, Yahoo and Microsoft from within China or via Chinese ISPs were redirected to Baidu on Oct. 18 2007. Google confirmed the blocking and redirection and said “We've had numerous reports that Google.cn and other search engines have been blocked in China and traffic redirected to other sites. While this is clearly unfortunate, we've seen this happen before and are confident that service will be restored to our users in the very near future.” In a posting on Search Engine Land (http://searchengineland.com/071018-071828.php ) Danny Sullivan speculates that the Chinese government is retaliating over the award the U.S. government bestowed on the Dalai Lama by exercising power over U.S.-based search engines. China allegedly hijacked Google in 2002 during a media clampdown prior to a Communist Party Congress, according to a Wired Magazine article. The 2002 move appeared to be ordered by public security authorities and implemented locally via Internet servers run by the country's fixed phone giant China Telecom, claims the Wired Magazine article.

There's an element of risk when investing in chinese domains.

I see it as lottery, you either win big, or you lose all.
