China plans to require that all personal computers sold in the country as of July 1 be shipped with software that blocks access to certain Web sites, a move that could give government censors unprecedented control over how Chinese users access the Internet.
China has the highest number of Internet users in the world and that explains why American companies co-operate with the Chinese government in implementing internet censorship. WordPress is however different.
Bloggers and journalists in China are using a novel approach to bypass Internet filters in their country â€“ they write backwards or from right to left. The content therefore remains readable by human beings but defeats the web filtering software.
