It seems a long time, but the battle of words over Internet censorship, between the authorities in China and the world’s largest search engine Google, has only been going on for a month.

But now it appears that the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the people that regulate the Internet in China, have actually now approved the licence application to the Beijing Guxiang Information Technology Co Ltd, the company that runs Google’s China based website.

According to Google, the licence has been renewed for one year, but it seems that this may not be the victory that it may first seem.

A ministry official has stated that the licence holder has agreed to abide by Chinese state law, which means that Google will omit sites that the government find subversive.
