According to their spokesperson, they have already stopped censoring.

That sounds a bit iffy to me.  It's one thing to say "we want to stop censoring, and will pull out if you don't let us", and "we are breaking the law, nah, nah, nah".

You don't like the law, don't do biz in that country.  But blatantly breaking a law is bad joo-joo.
