Jan. 16 - The U.S. State Department has decided to protest the Chinese government's underhanded attempts to steal intellectual property from the Gmail accounts of human rights activists in the U.S., China and Europe. On Tuesday, Google claimed its "corporate infrastructure" was hacked and that other large corporations were also targeted by Chinese espionage. In response, Google declared it will no longer censor searches from China and threatened to remove its search engine from the country if the Chinese government does not agree to have search filters eliminated. Human rights experts said that the U.S. government's protests may expedite the expansion of human rights overseas.
