Google's Other China Challenge

Google is under attack from Chinese sources as not having the proper Internet Content Provider (ICP)license to to business in China through its Google.cn web site.  The Beijing News noted that the Ministry of Information Industry became concerned enough to investigate, and the China Business Times said outright that Google did not have the license.

Google, for its part, responded that the license is in order and that it's held by a partner, Ganji.com.  Under Chinese law, foreign investors are prohibited from obtaining such a license.  Many other U.S. companies use similar partnerships to do business.

Sci-Tech Today has the story.
