“China’s top Internet regulator insisted Friday that Google must obey its laws or ‘pay the consequences,’ giving no sign of a possible compromise in their dispute over censorship and hacking. ‘If you want to do something that disobeys Chinese law and regulations, you are unfriendly, you are irresponsible and you will have to pay the consequences,’ Li Yizhong, the minister of Industry and Information Technology, said on the sidelines of China’s annual legislature. … ‘Whether they leave or not is up to them,’ Li said. ‘But if they leave, China’s Internet market is still going to develop.’ … Li insisted the government needs to censor Internet content to protect the rights of the country and its people. ‘If there is information that harms stability or the people, of course we will have to block it,’ he said.”
