Google's resolution of its internet presence in China seems to have reached a stable point, at least for the time being.

"Google agreed... that it will respect China's laws and regulations," Zhang Feng, an official with China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, told members of the press, according to an Agence France-Presse report. "That is to say, it will not provide any information that will endanger China's national security, damage China's national interests, instigate ethnic hatred, spread superstitious information, damage social stability, or (provide) pornography, violence or slanderous information."

Instead of redirecting visitors to the Google.cn page directly to Google's Hong Kong site, it added a prominent button users had to click to go there. The Chinese government referred to the change as the "rectification".
