ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the cultural differences that American company Google Inc. search engine had to contend with in order to do business in China. The Chinese government's censorship policy, which is known as the Golden Shield Project and also the Great Firewall of China, requires Internet companies to self-censor their content which is an ethical dilemma for Google because the policy is counter to Google's core values such as Internet freedom. Google was criticized for allegedly helping the Chinese government continue its violation of the human right of free speech. Two ethical decision making models are noted.
