Media in Britain predicts that there is 99.9% probability of Google’s final withdraw. It seems the result has been destined.|
From the beginning Google is spinning. It really hopes China or Chinese people could give it a reason to stay, but they lose heart now. They realize that Chinese internet users are not so dependent on Google. Also, there won’t be another possibility in a war between a company and a nation. The people have accepted the result.
But Google cannot just stand up and go home; it must clear its debt. I must make one point clear that Google’s withdraw is a business move, not a political one. It alleges to leave and Chinese government allows, so simple. All consequent losses must be burdened by Google.
The first, Google breaks the contract with its employees, so it should pay for its breach of promise. All companies and individuals whose interests are hurt by Google’s suit and withdraw can ask Google for compensation. The third, Google should apologize for interrupting Chinese internet users.
Google Partners Call for Clarity on China Plans
Published: March 17, 2010
BEIJING, March 17 (Reuters) - Chinese firms selling advertising space on Google's search pages have demanded clarity about the Internet company's plans in China, warning they will demand compensation if it shuts its Chinese portal.
A letter purportedly from 27 Google-authorised sales representative companies says the wait has gone on for too long, eroding their business, scaring off employees and putting big investments in jeopardy.
"We see a constant stream of information but cannot predict the future, we see business sliding, but there is nothing we can do," says the letter, which was also posted on a website affiliated with China's central television. "We are waiting now in incomparable pain and disquiet."
Google has received the letter and is reviewing it, spokeswoman Jill Hazelbaker said.
The companies spell out demands for redress -- for investors, employees and clients -- that could add to the economic and political pressures on Google if it shuts down Google.cn and perhaps withdraws other operations from China.
