Doing Business in China: For Better or Worse

After Google announced that it is considering pulling out of China, some companies, like Microsoft, jumped at the chance to take their place, while others agreed that China's regulatory regime is too restrictive for the free operation of American technology companies. HBS's recent review of the Google/China skirmish says that "The Google issue has become a cause celebre that exacerbates the already fragile and festering U.S.-China relationship." Is opening your business to censorship and some level of government control worth it? What do the Chinese people think about their government's censorship of information technology? Is doing business in China getting better, or worse, for American tech companies? Experts and insiders weigh in.
