Google Threatens Pullout From China After E-Mail Accounts Are Hacked

Google threatened to end its operations in China after it
discovered that the e-mail accounts of human rights activists
had been breached.

The company said it had detected a "highly sophisticated and
targeted attack on our corporate infrastructure originating
from China." Google says further investigation revealed that
"a primary goal of the attackers was accessing the Gmail
accounts of Chinese human rights activists." Google did not
specifically accuse the Chinese government. But the company
added that it is "no longer willing to continue censoring our
results" on its Chinese search engine, as the government
requires. Google says the decision could force it to shut
down its Chinese site and its offices in the country.

Google really doesn't operate anything in Laos. You can still access Google.com or Google.la because it probably uses the same basic infrastructure that it uses everywhere else. I would assume that China has specialized servers that a Google operates through, specifically for Chinese users.

I don't think they do any censoring for Laos, the government just bans websites.
