China has postponed the rollout of its controversial and much criticised Green Dam internet filtering tool.
The Chinese government said that the date for the mandated inclusion of the filter would be put off to allow PC vendors extra time to prepare for the law, which requires all systems sold in the country to be bundled with the software, according to the Xinhua news agency.
The country's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology had set 1 July as the deadline for compliance with the law. No new deadline has been given.
