It has many rules and regulations that make accessing the Internet sites a lot harder than in our country. In Vietnam, there are many restrictions to some websites on the Internet, mainly because their government is power hungry and doesn’t want their people posting negative things about them. The Internet is the best place for people to chat and protest against the government without getting caught. It is the Vietnamese government’s best interest to keep this information away from the people so no riots or protests occur and cause the government to be over thrown. The Vietnamese government wanted to put an end to all the rebelling comments and articles; therefore they prohibited some major websites such as Facebook, Google, and other Internet companies.
Not only did simple search results suffer, but other services such as Google News and Google Images were unavailable most of the time as well.

I think that Google was upholding their mission statement when creating Google.cn, as well as respecting the difference in culture and ethical views in a different country. I think that the American views of what is right and wrong probably caused Google to shut down the search engine because the general American ethical standpoint is that censorship is wrong and I’m sure that the criticism of Americans caused Google to have to choose between loyalty to America and their American customers and holding true to their mission statement, even if they had to do it using another viewpoint on ethics.

They aren't specific enough. Sedition refers to inciting others to commit treason, Subversion or secession, or inciting others to engage in violent public disorder that would seriously endanger the stability of the PRC. This is what the government has drafted for sedition. This is all right but they don't explain what 'inciting' is enough. So if Article 23 is passed and you wrote an article about how the Chief Executive of Hong Kong is doing a really bad job and would be good for Hong Kong if he resigned and maybe people will read it.
The pollution is hurting the GDP and the people of China. Factories that once caused the pollution are leaving to countries with even more relaxed regulations. This has forced China to pushed China to invest in other sectors which can be a risky gamble. China is losing its allure and is now faced with new task of adapting. If China cannot adapt then there will be no more growth, and the “Golden Years” will be for nothing.
I’m going to write about the different methods China’s government uses to prevent its people from knowing what is really happening. In China, the government monitors all things on the internet, and blocks certain web sites and pages that contain anything it does not want the people seeing. Another common method of censorship is the government reviewing all of the newspapers before they are released for print, if the government does not approve, the articles are rewritten, or not published at all. The government allows for criticism of it, but if there is any sort of collective expression within it, the words will be destroyed like many other things in China.

Internet censorship is not a viable option for any government to partake in. In censoring the internet the government infringes on their citizen’s basic human rights, it would become a costly endeavour, and it’s a lost cause. To begin with, by censoring the internet a country violates its citizen’s rights to freedom of speech and other basic human rights. Censorship provides control of human expression and it would make sense that the governments that fear revolts are those that are in favour it. China whose, “Government official are worried that, as the number of Chinese homes with telephone lines grows from the present level of less than four percent, the State will become totally unable to monitor Internet aces at residencies” (CIA 1) is a perfect example of how censorship is only a ploy to control the flow of ideas.
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”).
They must adhere to rules that their home nations would find offensive and oppressive. From a business sense, this handicaps companies like Google, whose main purpose is to provide the world with information for everyone.

In this case, China wants it all. They want to control every piece of information in their country, and shelter their citizens from "the truth".
Considering the example of China where government put a check on online information. Google has a big concern over the Chinese market because many web pages were blocked within that region. Culture also have great influence in emerging economies as it can be observed that in many countries offering expensive gifts in corporate world is consider as bribe especially in United States or Canada while in few countries it is ethically acceptable. Here, sharing expensive gifts even to politician in power is illegal but companies provide them as a bribe otherwise they will not receive any favors from the government. To run smooth business it is important to not to have any barriers for that company avail this option of gifting bribe to high officials even the foreign corporation does not hesitate to follow this same practice.
Changing conditions The suppression of the Tiananmen Square protests in 1989 wrecked public confidence in the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). The CCP asserted harsh tactics to crush the opposition and influence the people to believe it had not lost its position. Other Chinese citizens believed that the CCP could be defeated because of the distrust the citizens had in the government. It led to a divide in society. The economic growth experienced in the 1990s led the people of China to forget about the politics and focus on material gains.
