Welcome to China, host country of IETF 79, the first IETF meeting that
will break the
record of VPN tunnels ...

Also, what law ? what government ?

Ask Yahoo about what happened in France about some collectible items,
ask Dow Jones
for distributing news in Australia that some guy didn't like, ask
Google about providing
search results that famous people don't want to see everywhere.

On the other hand, name it Google, Yahoo, Bing, or whatever, their biz
model is to make
money based on information they collect about you (even in an abstract
form) or that
put through your throat as advertisement, but keep in mind that most
of the time there
is only one source for such information: You ;-)

If you don't like it, get isolated, (I was going to say move to Mars
but it won't work since
it's already on Google's master plan and Vint's interplanetary network
vision) move
to Wassila and enjoy fishing alone.
