More students protest Google's China policy

Students protested Google's China policy at University of California at Berkeley and Stanford University this weekend, according to a San Francisco Chronicle report.

The students were demonstrating at talks given by Google China President Kai-Fu Lee, who spoke in Chinese about his background and recruitment for Google. In response to questions, he said Google did the right thing in censoring its search site in China.

Students for a Free Tibet and others within days after Google launched its China Web site.

Lee is no stranger to controversy. He was the employee in the middle of the lawsuit between Microsoft and Google that was settled before it went to trial. Microsoft claimed Lee violated a non-compete agreement by jumping to Google so quickly last summer to head up the search giant's research lab there.
