The little brouhaha between Google and China may be coming to an end. The search engine just confirmed on their blog that China has renewed their ICP license. This comes after Google began to cease re-directing visitors to, the unfiltered Hong Kong engine.

Google is now sending users to a landing page on that links to, allowing users to search or use other Google services provided locally without filtering. Apparently the Chinese government is cool with that; they've renewed Google's license to operate in their country and the worst part of the feud appears to be over.

After Google's blustery, principle-filled stand, this may seem like a bit of a backtrack. That's because it is one. China is a huge market though, and Google can hardly be blamed for doing the same thing any other giant company would.
