Introduction The aim of this study is to determine the differences between the Internet in China and the United States. China was chosen due to the restrictive and closely scrutinized nature of its Internet, in contrast to the internet in United States which has significantly more freedom and protected by the freedom of speech and expression. This study will include: • Distribution and segmentation of the medium in both countries • Ownership • National regulatory structures • Socio-economic origins and functions of medium in today’s society It was concluded in this study that extreme control over the Internet will only disadvantage a country. Besides keeping the information technology sector out of date, the economy will not grow to its potential and at the same time, shelter the people of a country from information that they have the right to know. Nonetheless, there should be some level of gatekeeping and control over the Internet that is aligned with the freedom of speech and expression.
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.
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. Google, like all international companies, must work with the governments of the countries they do business with and abide by their rules and statutes. 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.
The Great Firewall is what people call the firewall that prevents users from reaching certain sites. To find the sites that need censoring, they create algorithms to go through the internet looking for blacklisted words. Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are required to cooperate with the government and sign the public pledge, which has been criticized by the United... ... middle of paper ... ...orried about China and it's censoring. Some businesses do not want to initiate deals because of the limited access of the internet. All the monitoring and censorship causes issues with business, trade, and the economy.
Prior to entering China, Google had high expectations of succeeding in China’s booming market for Internet companies. As Google entered China, they experienced unexpected problems that Google was not prepared to solve. Some of the problems Google faced were: criticisms from the US government and its citizens, poor service to their Chinese users, and a loss of market share to their Chinese competitors. The US government was certainly not a fan of Google entering China. The US government’s view was that Google entered China by placing move value on making profits than protecting citizens’ right to the freedom of speech.
Imagine a world where the United States of America limits what the people say on social media and then locks them up for saying something that goes against the beliefs of the government. Isn’t it a blessing that the citizens of the USA don’t have to worry about it? It is a great feeling but for others it is a nightmare. The consequences of not following media censorship laws varies depending on the country. Most of China’s internet companies are privately owned and this is different compared to other countries(Mohamed Farah “How Chinese Internet Censorship Works”).
Inc. China is a classic example of a multinational corporation that has struggled to conduct successful business in China. One of the ethical challenges Google has faced in China is the frequent cyber-attacks that have been orchestrated by the Chinese government. In the article, Justin and Anna reveals that Google and
China has large population base, and the average education level is low. But that not mean Chinese don’t have judgment to distinguish the fact and rumors. All in all, Chinese government should accept foreign social networking like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. To forbid those networking cannot stop the rumors radically, however, it would lose more useful information than those rumors. Everyone have his or her rights to know what happened and what already has happened in their owe country.
Open up Dell Retail Stores The Chinese are uncomfortable with purchase high-ticket-price products that cannot be viewed before purchase. This is one of the reasons that Dell has invested in door-to-door sales calls. If Dell were to open up retail outl... ... middle of paper ... ...s option addresses the hesitance of customers to make such a large purchase for a product brand that is not well established in China. This option will allow customers to transfer residual risk and implement a disciplined approach to technology rotation. I believe that for China, customers will be more likely to choose Dell products because this is in a sense a "try before you buy" opportunity.
With those two definitions its clear citizens of China should be able to make the decision to have more than one child and that it’s unfair, although the harsh and cruel law declares otherwise. Originally in 1979 when the one child policy was introduced it was to control the growing population and reduce the strain on scarce resources. In some eyes it was a great valuable decision while to many others it left them shattered. China was wrong to take away the right to have as many children as a family wished. It was a decision made fully by the people of Chinas government and the citizens of China had no say so they had to comply or they’d face penalties.
