(xi) Brand X cannot only invested small amounts of capital in China and without considering a business strategy based on factors unique to the under-developed Chinese system of commerce because China’s undeveloped infrastructure, government regulations, and regional protectionism fragment distribution channels throughout China.

Even offering a heavily censored and handicapped version of their search engine, Google's revenue producers AdSense and AdWords could still make billions. Google is well known as the world's most recognized brands and ignoring China's vast population from a business sense would be a regrettable decision.

Although the current Chinese regime has been strong on internet censorship, in the future they may change their stance and become more progressive on censorship. This could only take place with a highly-unlikely radical change in the political structure of China, but to already have a solid user base leading into that situation would be highly advantageous.

This means that Google was implying that the vision for their company could comply with the self-censorship laws in China, however, being an American company, they received much criticism about whether their decision was ethical. A factor in Google’s extreme success was the fact that they provided many more services than just a search engine. In fact, Google is used for translation services, email, and blog hosting, among various other things.
The great firewall of China is a manifestation of the oppressive regime that denies the Chinese people their basic rights to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness. The recent action taken by Google to leave China is a move in the right direction. However, Google, like other U.S firms in China, played a deceitful role in abetting the injustice perpetrated by the Chinese government. Google as a company enjoyed the rights guaranteed by the U.S constitution, while they helped an oppressive regime deny it to billions of citizens. Furthermore, abetting an oppressive regime suppress and subjugate its citizens is unethical from any moral standpoint.

The United States advertisement, on the other hand, is much less emotionally involved.
The company has to adjust its policies to conform to the Chinese moral and ethical frameworks that guide CSR activities in the country. Google faces challenges doing business in China because its CSR policies are not compatible with the Chinese market. The regulatory conditions and the sociocultural norms, upon which Google’s CRS policies are founded, unfortunately are not applicable in China. As a foreign company not used to the country’s laws, Google is facing strict and constant social controls on its CSR activities. This deters Google’s operations in China since the Chinese government is unwilling to give in to Google’s demands.
