Google to Launch “Censored” Search in China

According to documents leaked this week, Google is likely to launch a censored version of its search service in China.

The Intercept says that the project, codenamed Dragonfly, may blacklist websites and search terms including human rights, democracy, religion, and peaceful protest.

It was revealed that Google programmers and engineers have already developed a custom Android app called “Maotai” and “Longfei” which has already been demoed to the Chinese government. The app, which will adhere to the country’s strict censorship laws, is just waiting for the approval of government officials and may be launched within six to nine months.
