The Great Firewall of China

There has been a lot of China related news of late, particularly as China unblocks Wikipedia, which many take to be a sign that the government is willing to give ground if a digital resource is perceived as valuable enough to the populace. There's a lot of Google should-have-beens buzzing around the blogosphere.

There's also coverage about the controversial Yahoo journalism fellowship, given cooperation with the authoritarian regime and issues that the China Digital Times continues to spotlight, as in the case of this piece on the Internet's Top Cop there.

In intellectual property news, at least we know there's some real debate going on in the north as the Mongolian legislature debates bill on the use of Genghis Khan's name.
