Google [GOOG] announced last month that it would stop re-directing its Chinese visitors to their Hong Kong website are their Internet Content Provider license was up for renewal in China.
Google was basically told by the Chinese government that it was unlikely that the license would be renewed unless this was done.
We are very pleased that the government has renewed our ICP license and we look forward to continuing to provide web search and local products to our users in China.
Google users in China can still access the uncensored Hong Kong results as before from a link on the Google.cn homepage.
