China Renews License for Google

China confirmed Sunday that it has renewed Google’s license to operate after a months-long standoff over Internet censorship, saying the company had pledged it wouldn’t provide “lawbreaking content.”

Google said Friday it had received approval to operate in the world’s most populous country, after it agreed to stop automatically rerouting users of Google.cn to its site in Hong Kong, which is not subject to China’s online censorship. The company began the rerouting earlier this year when it decided to stop censoring its search results on the mainland site.

An official with Ministry of Industry and Information Technology confirmed the license was renewed for another year for Beijing Guxiang Information Technology Co. Ltd., the operator of Google’s China website, the official Xinhua News Agency said Sunday.
