Bill Gates, China, and the Internet

I think Bill Gates is correct to say that companies have got to obey the laws of the countries they enter. If not, they are going to end up not doing business there at all. Certainly the Chinese efforts to censor the Internet have been very limited. They are easy to circumvent so surely keeping the Internet thriving there is more important. Anyway, the Internet is subject to different kinds of censorship around the world but has so far proved a consistent success at promoting openness and the exchange of ideas.
